Supreme Court upholds Presidential election result despite electronic vote controversy



In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court has declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission’s failure to transmit election results electronically did not impact the presidential election’s outcome.

The ruling, delivered by Justice John Okoro, settles the appeal by former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, along with that of the Labour Party’s candidate, Peter Obi, who sought to nullify President Bola Tinubu’s victory on February 25.

Justice Okoro firmly dismissed the contention surrounding the 25 percent requirement for Abuja, categorizing it as a non-issue.

This pivotal judgment upholds the integrity of the presidential election, dispelling any doubts and ensuring that the results stand.
