Supreme Court Judges Who May Decide Nigeria’s Next President by Shehuyinka: 2:23pm On Mar 22, 2023
As parties displeased with the outcomes of February 25, 2023, presidential election head for court, The ICIR reports that the cases will most likely get to the Supreme Court, given similar cases in the past.

Following what many see as controversial pronouncements by the apex court in recent times, The ICIR’s Marcus Fatunmole and Theophilus Adedokun, in this piece, profile the current 13 justices of the Supreme Court, including some of the recent cases they handled and accompanying public opinions that greeted their outcomes.

The ICIR had earlier done an explainer on steps and timelines for resolving Presidential election disputes in Nigeria. Read it HERE.

The 2023 presidential result
INEC declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, the election winner at about 4 a.m. on Wednesday, March 1.

The Chairman of the Commission and the returning officer for the 2023 Presidential Election, Mahmood Yakubu, said Tinubu polled 8,794,726 votes.

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar finished second with 6,984,520 votes. (The ICIR reported how hope dims for Atiku after six failed shots at the presidency.)

Labour Party (LP) candidate Peter Obi came third in the February election with 6,101,533 votes, while Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) had 1,496,687.

Twelve other candidates got fewer votes than the four major political parties at the election.

PDP and LP have claimed they won the poll and would be heading to court to challenge its outcome.

Some of the previous judgements bothering on elections by the Supreme Court
In December 2008, the court upheld the election of late President Musa Y’adua, despite admitting it was flawed.

The former Military Head of State and now incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar, who vied for the presidency against Yar’Adua, challenged his victory.

Yar’Adua succeeded former President Olusegun Obasanjo on a joint ticket he held with former President Goodluck Jonathan. Jonathan assumed office after Yar’Adua died in office.

In January 2020, The ICIR reported how six governors reclaimed their mandates through the Supreme Court since the nation returned to democracy in 1999.

The Supreme Court justices and some of the cases they have handled
Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Olukayode Ariwoola
The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Olukayode Ariwoola, was appointed a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria in 2011. He was at the Court of Appeal between 2005 and 2011.

From Peter Obi’s petition at the Tribunal, as revealed this yesterday by his Lawyers, and for not asking the Tribunal to declare him as the winner as threatened initially, it is absolutely clear that Obi has no other results apart from the ones declared by INEC, he also knows he lost the election despite all his multiple bigotry tactics, his interest at the moment is how to tame his rabid followers who he can only control by giving them a false non existing hope to hang on so as not to turn the altar merchants to fake prophets and also to prevent total frustration from being the lots of endsarsprenuers whose hope is to hijack public treasury.

GAME OVER for Peter Obi, his petition is watery!

We need to see the history of the cases they have handled in the past to be able to analyse whether they will tilt to the right or left in this case.

Seems you see this forum as an opportunity to train your writing skill. That's still good if you can achieve that. But I advise you to stop making a fool of yourself in matters like this. It is a mismatch making this lame points with good grammar.

Are you sure you read his petition?. I seriously doubt you did. Please go to page 36 and see Obi's prayers 4(ii)(iii) as can be seen here https://www.scribd.com/document/632742041/Peter-Obi-Election-Petition# . He is a man of peace, he made alternate prayers
