Ahead of its final address before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, the Supreme Court has struck out an appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the last presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.

A five-man panel led by Justice Dattijo Muhammad 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.
