DOWNLOAD: Full text of the tribunal judgment that affirmed Tinubu’s election


On Wednesday, the presidential election petitions tribunal affirmed the victory of Bola Tinubu as the duly elected president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the February 25 election.

The five-member panel tribunal dismissed three different petitions challenging the outcome of the presidential poll.

Part of the issues raised by the petitioners against Tinubu included his failure to secure 25 percent of votes cast in the federal capital territory (FCT), his forfeiture of $460,000 in the US, his academic records alleged to have been forged and his non-qualification due to the double nomination of his running mate, Kashim Shettima.

The petitioners also challenged the failure of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to transmit election results electronically.

However, the tribunal led by Haruna Tsammani held that the petitioners — Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), failed to adduce credible evidence to prove the allegations contained in their different petitions.

Consequently, the court held that all three petitions were “devoid of merit”.
