Six states – Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo and Sokoto – have collectively submitted a suit to the Supreme Court of Nigeria against the country’s Attorney General Abubakar Malami.

This case represents the first legal review of last month’s controversial presidential election.

The six states are all governed by members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) whose candidate Atiku Abubakar earned 6,984,520 votes in contrast to President-elect Bola Tinunbu who was announced victor with 8,794,726 votes.

The six states are calling for Tinunbu’s winning announcement to be deemed null and void as they believe that it wasn’t executed in compliance with the Electoral Act from multiple provisions of said law.

In addition to this request for nullification of results on account of incomplete Electoral Act fulfillment, the governors are also asking for an official declaration that renews and amends national election protocol due to its divergence from legal regulations such as Sections 25; 47(2); 60 (1), (2), (4) & (5); 62; 64(4)(a) & (b); 70; and 148 of the Electoral Act as well as paragraphs 38 of the INEC Regulations Guidelines For Election Conduct 2022; 2.8.4; 2.9.0; and 2.9.1 from INEC Manual for Election Officials 2023 in regards election results transmission through BVAS technology not being implemented properly nationwide at polling units across 176, 974 locations.

Attorney Mike Ozekhome representing these six PDP-run states is presenting these claims that federal government officials disregarded applicable laws and regulations when handling this presidential election process causing invalidity among other issues concerning lack of appropriate procedure execution during this ordeal.
