Nigeria’s Supreme Court on Wednesday, 30th dismissed Peoples Democratic Party Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar’s appeal for lacking merit.
The apex court announced the decision on today, hours after it commenced the hearing of the appeal.
The Supreme Court panel, led by Chief Justice of Nigeria Tanko Muhammad, said it will give reasons for dismissing the petition on a later date.
Mr Abubakar and the PDP filed the appeal at the Supreme Court after the presidential election tribunal last month dismissed their original petition.
The tribunal ruled against the PDP on the core issues it raised about the February presidential election.
