Were They Expecting Us To Be persuaded By Threats On Social Media? – Justice Yusuff Speaks On Tribunal Verdict

The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) has scolded petitions challenging Nigeria President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s win in the 2023 election, saying they failed to provide vivid evidence to prove their case.

While the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) dragged Tinubu to court seeking the nullification of his victory, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Labour Party (LP), and their candidates in the poll, also challenged the former Lagos State governor’s win in the election.

But while delivering judgement in the ruling that upheld Tinubu’s election, a member of the five-person panel Justice Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf berated the petitioners for their inability to prove their cases.

“The petitioners did not understand the explanation of the first respondent or were just fixated on their belief that they won the election without any cogent and credible evidence, and they did not even bother to place such credible evidence before this court,” she said at the Court of Appeal premises in Abuja.
