Just as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar were preparing to for its final address before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, the Supreme Court has struck out an appeal filed by the ex Vice President and his party.
Atiku and the PDP had appealed a ruling by the Elections petition tribunal that they do not have a reply to an application filed on May 14, 2019, by the All Progressives Congress (APC) seeking among others reliefs, the dismissal of their (Atiku and the PDP) petition challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the 2019 presidential election.
But a five-man panel led by Justice Datijo Mohammed, struck out the appeal for having become statute-barred.
Check out how Nigerians are reacting to the news below.
