Unic Press UK: Nigeria’s highest court of law has dismissed the appeal filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar with regard to the Presidential Election 2019, in which, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari was declared winner.

Leading a Supreme Court panel of seven justices, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Judge Tanko Mohammed said the apex court would give reasons for its judgment at a later date.

Reacting to the judgement, Atiku wrote on Twitter:

“While I believe that only God is infallible everywhere, and only Nigerians are infallible in our democracy, I must accept that the judicial route I chose to take, as a democrat, has come to a conclusion. Whether justice was done, is left to the Nigerian people to decide. As a democrat, I fought a good fight for the Nigerian people.
