The presidential election tribunal in Nigeria has dismissed the petition filed by the candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party Atiku Abubakar against President Muhammadu Buhari.

Local newspapers reported that the tribunal said Mr. Abubakar and the opposition PDP did not provide sufficient evidence to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that the 2019 general elections did not comply with the electoral act or that Mr. Buhari or his All Progressives Congress rigged them.
