The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has asked the Supreme Court to accept the fresh documents he is tendering against President Bola Tinubu.
Atiku’s lead counsel, Chris Uche, SAN, said the matter is a grave and constitutional issue and told the court to admit the application and grant their request.
He said “The issue involving Tinubu’s certificate is a weighty, grave, and constitutional one, which the Supreme Court should admit. I urge the court to admit the fresh evidence of President Tinubu’s academic records from CSU presented by Atiku. .
Tinubu’s lead counsel, Wole Olanipekun, SAN said the INEC should have been joined in the proceedings in the US, adding that the CSU depositions are dormant until the deponent comes to court and testify.
According to INEC lawyer, Abubakar Mahmoud, the Supreme Court should dismiss Atiku’s application seeking to present Tinubu’s academic records.
