The Supreme Court has concurred with the Court of Appeal’s position that the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, should be treated similarly to other states.
Presiding over the panel, Justice John Okoro inquired, “Are you suggesting that if an individual garners 25% of the votes in 30 states but not in Abuja, they should not be eligible to become president? Is that the interpretation of the law?”
He went on to clarify, “That interpretation is not in accordance with the law. The Supreme Court aligns with the Court of Appeal on this matter.”
