An appeals court in Nigeria rejected two out of three petitions challenging the legitimacy of President Bola Tinubu’s victory in the February election. The opposition parties argued that Tinubu was not qualified to run for president because he was a citizen of Guinea and allegedly did not have the required academic credentials. The court ruled that the petitioners failed to provide sufficient evidence to support their claims. The last petition is still under deliberation. If the court upholds the last petition, it would be the first time a presidential election is annulled in Nigeria’s history.
