On Monday, President Bola Tinubu asserted that the evidence from Chicago State University (CSU) presented by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is inadmissible.
Tinubu made this argument during the Supreme Court proceedings regarding Atiku’s appeal to annul his (Tinubu’s) victory in the 2023 presidential election.
Led by Chief Wole Olanipekun, SAN, Tinubu’s legal team contended that the foreign depositions relied upon by Atiku for the admission of the certificate were conducted in a private law chamber in the United States of America (USA).
They further argued that the necessary prerequisites were not fulfilled by the Applicants to allow the apex court to admit the documents as evidence.
In the USA, we have their rules, this depositions are not even admissible in their own courts! We have highlighted those rules in our counter affidavit.
“My lords, this is aside from the fact that the depositions were not done in the court, but in private chambers,” Olanipekun added.
