Application filed by Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party to adduce fresh evidence on the Chicago State University (CSU) diploma presented to INEC by Tinubu has been refused and dismissed by the Supreme Court.

9News Nigeria reports that the deposition by the Registrar of the Chicago University, Caleb Westberg, has been rejected and ruled inadmissible on the ground that the Supreme Court lacks jurisdiction to countenance same because the 180 days timeline for determination of election petition had elapsed.

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

The Supreme Court also ruled that in the petition filed by Atiku, facts of forgery were not pleaded and no application for amendment of the petition or extension of time was filed. That even if such application for amendment or extension of time was brought, it would have been refused.

The Supreme Court also ruled that no issue for determination predicated on certificate forgery was raised by Atiku in his Brief of Argument.

The Supreme Court equally held that the conditions for introduction of fresh evidence on appeal have not been met.
