The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has taken his case to the Supreme Court, urging them to reject President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s argument based on technicality regarding his fresh evidence.
Atiku has requested the apex court to allow him to present new evidence supporting his allegation that the president submitted forged documents to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in order to participate in the February 25 presidential election. He argues that the act of presenting forged documents, especially by a candidate running for the highest office in the country, is a serious constitutional issue that should not be tolerated.
Atiku believes that Tinubu’s opposition is based on technicality rather than the merits of the case. He wants the Supreme Court to consider the importance of the evidence he has presented and not dismiss it solely on procedural grounds.
This case is significant because it involves allegations of forgery against a presidential candidate. If Atiku’s claims are proven to be true, it could have serious consequences for the president and the integrity of the electoral process.
Atiku emphasizes that presenting forged documents is a violation of the constitution and undermines the democratic process. He believes that the Supreme Court should carefully consider the evidence he has provided and make a fair judgment based on the facts.
Atiku Abubakar has appealed to the Supreme Court to reject President Tinubu’s opposition and give serious consideration to the fresh evidence he has presented. The outcome of this case could have far-reaching implications for the president and the electoral process in Nigeria.
