The tribunal chairman, Justice Haruna Tsammani, who read the judgement, held that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, did not successfully prove the allegations of fraud, non-compliance with the electoral act and indeed all the grounds in their petition challenging the outcome of the election.
Justice Tsammani said: “This petition (PDP) accordingly lacks merit. I affirm the return of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the duly elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The parties are to bear their cost.”
