The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Abubakar Atiku, has filed an appeal before the supreme court seeking to nullify the judgment of the election petition tribunal, which affirmed Bola Tinubu winner of the February 25 presidential election.
The 35-grounds notice of appeal was filed on Monday through Chris Uche, lead counsel to Atiku.
Atiku, represented by his legal team led by Chief Chris Uche, SAN, petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn the Court of Appeal’s judgment on September 6, which upheld Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as the legitimate winner of the presidential election.
He argued before the Supreme Court that the ruling of the Justice Haruna Tsammani-led five-member panel of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) which dismissed his petition challenging the presidential election’s outcome, was not only unjust but also led to a significant miscarriage of justice against him.
Atiku contends that the PEPC panel made a legal error by not annulling the presidential election due to non-compliance with the Electoral Act, 2022, despite evidence demonstrating that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, violated existing laws and election regulations.

He further alleged that the PEPC reached its unanimous decision by misinterpreting and misrepresenting provisions of both the 1999 Constitution, as amended, and the Electoral Act, 2022.
