A petition seeking to nullify President Bola Tinubu’s election over the inability to transmit the result of the election electronically has been dismissed.
A 35-ground of appeal filed by Atiku’s lead counsel, Chris Uche, SAN, praying the apex court to set aside the judgment of the lower court, faulted the tribunal’s ruling on electronic transmission of results, Tinubu’s qualification for the election, Federal Capital Territory votes, among others.
Supreme Court in its ruling on Thursday stated that:
a. When IREV fails, it does not stop the collation of results.
b. The non-function of IREV does not reduce voters’ confidence.
On these grounds, Justice Okoro said the application is hereby dismissed and refused.
