Nigerians Knock Justice Garba Over Presidential Tribunal Ruling In Atiku vs Buhari
 

Nigerians have berated Justice Mohammed Garba over his final judgment, as the head of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal on the 2019 presidential election.

Naija News had reported earlier that the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) on Wednesday dismissed the petition of the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Delivering judgment, Justice Mohammed Garba, who led a five-man panel of justices, said: “This petition is accordingly, and hereby dismissed in its entirety.

“In the final result, and I have come to the conclusion which is inevitable and unavoidable, that the petitioners have not proved any of the grounds of the petition in paragraph 15 of the petition.

“This petition is accordingly and hereby dismissed in its entirety.”

Naija News recalls that PDP, Nigeria’s main opposition party, rejected the verdict of the tribunal and asked its lawyers to file an appeal at the supreme court.

Apparently displeased with the judgment, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to berate the tribunal judge.
