The presidential election petition tribunal had upheld the victory of President Buhari in the last election.
The tribunal on Wednesday dismissed the petition filed by Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on the basis that it lacked merit.
In a statement, Ahmed said: “The judgment of the presidential election petition tribunal striking out the petition of the PDP and its candidate in the 2019 presidential elections, Atiku Abubakar, and affirming the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the polls is one that we did not see as unexpected,” he said.
“A genuine electoral mandate was given to us in February that truly reflected the mood and political reality in the country. We didn’t win in any state that we didn’t have a strong wind going into the elections.
