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.

In a ruling read by Garba Mohammed, the five-member tribunal dismissed all the five arguments leveled against President Buhari’s electoral victory by the People’s Democratic Party and Mr. Abubakar.

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.

The five-member panel went on to dismiss all other arguments raised by the PDP and Atiku and affirmed the victory of Mr. Buhari, 76.

One unclear issue, though, remains the education qualification of Mr. Buhari.

The tribunal had dismissed the argument of the electoral body that President Buhari’s certificate nightmare was a pre-electoral matter that should be dismissed.

This is a breaking news that would be updated.
