Supreme court fixes date to hear Atiku’s suit challenging Tinubu’s victory
The Supreme Court has fixed Monday to hear Atiku's suit challenging Tinubu's victory as president.
Atiku’s appeal seeks to challenge the verdict of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, which affirmed Bola Tinubu‘s victory as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 presidential election.
Atiku Abubakar is urging the Supreme Court to bypass technicalities and allow him to submit fresh and additional evidence to substantiate his claim that Bola Tinubu presented a forged document to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in his bid to contest the presidential election.

In his argument, Atiku underscored the seriousness of a presidential candidate submitting forged documents, emphasizing that this is a grave constitutional matter that should not be overlooked.
In response to objections raised by Bola Tinubu concerning the granting of leave to Atiku, the former vice president has articulated his stance in a legal rejoinder.
The Supreme Court, in a memorandum issued on Thursday, has now fixed Monday, October 23, 2023, as the date for the critical hearing of this appeal.
