The Supreme Court has dismissed the application of Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to file fresh evidence on the Chicago State University (CSU) diploma of President Bola Tinubu.

The deposition by the Registrar of the CSU, Caleb Westberg, was rejected and ruled inadmissible on the ground that the Supreme Court lacks jurisdiction after the 180 days timeline for determination of election petition had elapsed.

Justice Inyang Okoro delivered the verdict on Thursday during the hearing of the appeals filed against Bola Tinubu’s win at the Presidential Election Tribunal Court (PEPC).

The judge noted that since the time for trial at the Court of Appeal had elapsed, the Supreme Court cannot accept fresh evidence on appeal.
