His lead counsel, Chris Uche, SAN, while speaking at the court on Monday, described the matter as a grave and constitutional matter.
He urged the court to admit the application and grant their request.
He said, “The issue involving Mr Tinubu’s certificate is a weighty, grave, and constitutional one, which the Supreme Court should admit. I urge the court to admit the fresh evidence of President Tinubu’s academic records from CSU presented by Atiku.
“The Supreme Court must take a look at Mr Tinubu’s records and reach a decision devoid of technicality.”
However, INEC lawyer, Abubakar Mahmoud, urged the Supreme Court to dismiss Atiku’s application seeking to present Tinubu’s academic records.
Tinubu’s lead counsel, Wole Olanipekun, SAN argued that INEC should have been a party at the deposition proceedings in the US.
He noted that the CSU depositions are dormant until the deponent comes to court and testify.
He told the court that Atiku cannot seek fresh evidence at the Supreme Court.
