Opposition Parties Reject Nigeria's Presidential Election Court Verdict

  • Nigeria's Appeal Court has rejected one challenge to Bola Tinubu's victory in the presidential election, dismissing all arguments, including fraud. Tinubu won with 37% of the votes, against 29% for Atiku Abubakar and 25% for Peter Obi.
  • The ruling brings relief to Tinubu, who was sworn into office on May 29, and he will now await the verdict on the challenge by Abubakar. The judges stated that the petitioners failed to prove allegations of corrupt practices, over-voting, and suppression of votes.
  • Despite increased security in the capital, Abuja, various political groups gathered outside the courthouse during the ruling. The Supreme Court is likely to hear appeals against the judgement, but the unanimous verdict by the Appeal Court judges gives Tinubu confidence.
