Supreme Court dismisses Atiku’s plea to file fresh evidence from CSU against Tinubu

Supreme Court dismisses Atiku?s plea to file fresh evidence from CSU against Tinubu

The Supreme Court has dismissed the application by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to admit fresh evidence in his appeal against President Bola Tinubu.

Atiku’s plea was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.

The apex court described Atiku’s petition as a friendly joke, insisting that it could not be granted.

According to the apex court, the case was filed out of time and couldn’t prove cause of forgery.

Recall that Atiku had sought to present fresh evidence of forgery against Tinubu.

He pleaded with the apex court to look into the matter because of its constitutional and democratic implications.

The fresh evidence Atiku sought to tender was the academic records of Tinubu, which were handed over to him by the Chicago State University (CSU) on October 2.

The former Vice President had informed the court that the fresh evidence was crucial to his appeal, adding that it has inherent jurisdiction to entertain and decide on the application.

However, the Supreme Court said it has no jurisdiction to entertain the fresh evidence as the time limit allowed by the constitution has elapsed.

Judgment is still ongoing.
