Buhari’s Victory: Atiku Shuns Supreme Court Explanation on Reasons For dismissing Appeal
None of the about 20 Senior Advocates of Nigeria paraded by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is present at the Supreme Court where the reasons for the dismissal of their appeal challenging the outcome of the February 23 presidential election is set to be delivered on Friday.
The Peoples Democratic Party failed to make any representation at the apex court on Friday after the court notified the public of its decision to explain the October 30 decision which dismissed their appeal.
However, most of the lawyers who represented the incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari, were already seated.
The three parties are the respondents to the appeal in favour of whom the apex court had ruled in the summary judgment delivered on October 30, 2019.
The court however said it will proceed with its reasons, despite the absence of the PDP. The matter was still on at the time of this report.
