Recall that Atiku has filed additional materials, including the recent deposition of the registrar of the Chicago State University, to support his arguments that Tinubu submitted false academic claims in his INEC nomination form.

/Tinubu’s lawyers, on the other hand, have asked the apex court to ignore the submissions of Atiku on the grounds that the statutory period for the submission of evidence has since closed.

The Supreme Court has until November 6, 2023, to give a final judgment on the appeal.
