The Supreme Court has delivered its first ruling against the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate in the 2019 Election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The Supreme Court began hearing on the appeal filed by PDP and Atiku challenging the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, headed the seven-man panel of the court, in the lead ruling consented to by other members, overruled Atiku’s request that their seven interlocutory appeals be heard after the main one must have been argued.

The seven-man panel held that it would be unnecessary to hear the interlocutory appeals when a judgment on the main appeal marked SC.1211/2019 would cover the field.
