Abuja - September 19 - Mediaage NG News – Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi and the flagbearer of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar have gone to the Supreme Court to challenge the dismissal of their cases against the victory of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president in last February’s election.
However, no date has been fixed for the hearing of the cases.

Earlier this month, an election petition tribunal ruled in a unanimous decision that both Mr. Obi and failed to prove that the election was flawed, saying they could not establish the allegations of over-voting and voter suppression.
The judges also said there was not enough evidence that supports the cases.

Mr Abubakar is seeking the Supreme Court to nullify the judgement, stating that it occasioned “grave error and miscarriage of justice” by upholding Mr Tinubu’s victory.

Through his lawyer, Mr Atiku also faulted the court’s use of “disparaging words” which he said “evinced bias”.

On his part, Mr Obi said the election court overlooked the facts in his case and failed to consider the weight of evidence he presented, thereby arriving at the wrong conclusion.
