Nigerian tribunal rejects bid to overturn Buhari’s election

ABUJA: A Nigerian election tribunal on Wednesday rejected a bid by the main opposition candidate to overturn the February presidential election. The widely expected defeat for opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar means there is no further challenge to President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election. The 76-year-old former military ruler first took office as an elected leader in 2015. The tribunal rejected all three of Atiku’s claims: that the election was marred by irregularities, that he received more votes than Buhari and that the president did not have a secondary school certificate.
