Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo, Taraba and Sokoto, In the suit which had the attorneys-general of the seven states as plaintiffs and the Attorney General of the Federation as defendant, are asking the Supreme Court to intervene in the just concluded general elections, as they claimed that the declaration of  Tinubu did not follow the Electoral Act and INEC’s own laid down guidelines, particularly  the uploading of results to the IREV through the BVAS. 

The Plaintiffs Lawyer Mike Ozekhome SAN, said the withdrawal became necessary since the election has already been concluded as the suit was filed while collation was still ongoing.
