A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Robert Clark, says nothing may come out of the appeal of Wednesday’s judgment of the Presidential Election Petitions Court by the petitioners who have vowed to approach the Supreme Court.

In an interview with Channels TV. the 85-year-old legal luminary said;

“My personal view has been enriched by past experience in the dispensation of justice at the bar. I have every belief, and I seriously believe that the unanimous judgment of the Court of Appeal is unassailable, it is as fixed as you can fix anything and I can assure you that if there is an appeal, I doubt whether anything can come out of the appeal.”

According to the legal veteran, all the matters, based on law, that were brought before the Tribunal by the petitioners had already been adjudged by the apex court in the country.

Clark aligned with the Tribunal that the petitioners failed to prove their petitions beyond reasonable doubt.

Recall that last Wednesday, September 6, the Presidential Election Petition Court PEPC in a 12-hour marathon judgment, dismissed the petitions filed by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM); the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar; as well as the petitions of Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi challenging the victory of President Tinubu in the February 25, 2023 presidential election, The five-man panel ruled that the petitions filed by the petitions lacked merit.
