The Supreme Court of Nigeria on Monday began hearing the appeal filed by former vice president Atiku Abubakar and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.

The seven-member panel of the court, led by Justice John Okoro, assembled at 10:00 am to hear the arguments of lawyers to the parties.

Atiku and the PDP are challenging the victory of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election, which was held on February 25, 2023.

In their appeal, Atiku and the PDP are alleging that there were widespread irregularities and malpractices in the election, including over-voting, vote-buying, and intimidation of voters.

They are also alleging that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) failed to conduct the election in a fair and transparent manner.

Tinubu and the APC have denied all of the allegations, and they have urged the Supreme Court to dismiss the appeal.

The hearing of the appeal is expected to last for several days.

Implications of the Supreme Court’s decision

The Supreme Court’s decision in the appeal will have far-reaching implications for Nigeria. If the court upholds Tinubu’s victory, it will put an end to all legal challenges to the election and allow him to continue as president.

However, if the court nullifies Tinubu’s victory and orders a fresh election, it will plunge Nigeria into a political crisis. It will also be a major setback for the country’s democracy.

Nigerians watch with bated breath

Nigerians are watching the Supreme Court hearing with bated breath. Many Nigerians are hoping that the court will uphold the rule of law and ensure that justice is done.

The Supreme Court’s decision is expected to be a major test of the country’s democracy and its institutions.
