The Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN Justice Tanko Mohammed, today led five other Justices of the Supreme Court to hear about six appeals in the case filed by the People’s Democratic Party,  PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 23rd election.

The other Justices are Bode Viviour, Olukayode Ariowola, Amiru Sanusi, Ejembi Eko and Uwani Aba-Aji.

PDP and Atiku had jointly filed their appeal before the apex court to challenge the September 11, 2019 judgment of the Justice Mohammed Garba-led Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.

The tribunal’s judgment, which Atiku and his party are dissatisfied with, had dismissed their petition challenging the outcome of the February 23rd, 2019 poll.

Subsequently, the petitioners on September 23rd filed 66 grounds of appeal before the Supreme Court to challenge the judgment of the tribunal.
