The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has urged the Supreme Court to admit fresh documents against President Bola Tinubu.
Speaking at the court on Monday, Atiku’s lead counsel, Chris Uche, SAN, described the matter as a grave and constitutional matter.
He urged the court to adopt the application and grant their request.
The fresh documents are President Tinubu Bola’s academic records obtained from the Chicago State University.
Presenting his argument, he said, “The issue involving Mr 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 argued that INEC should have been a party at the deposition proceedings in the US, noting that the CSU depositions are dormant until the deponent comes to court and testify.
He told the court that Atiku cannot seek fresh evidence at the Supreme Court.
