The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck out an appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The ruling was given by a five-man panel led by Justice Dattijo Muhammad.
The panel said the appeal was statute-barred.
The appeal was filed by the PDP and Atiku to challenge a ruling of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal which held that they failed to file a response to an application by the All Progressives Congress.
The APC’s application had prayed for among others the dismissal of the appellants’ petition at the tribunal.
This came barely 24 hours to the closing of arguments by parties to the petition scheduled to come up on Wednesday.
Atiku and the PDP are by their petition before the tribunal challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the February 23, 2019 election.
