This fine includes N10 million each to be paid to President Muhammadu Buhari, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and President-elect Tinubu, who were named as the 1st to 4th defendants in the case.

Abuse of Court Process and Frivolous Lawsuit

The three-member panel of the court found Chief Ambrose Albert Owuru guilty of gross abuse of the court process for filing a frivolous, vexatious, and irritating lawsuit with the intention of provoking the respondents.

Led by Justice Jamil Tukur, the panel concluded that Owuru’s grievances regarding the 2019 presidential election were not only strange but also unwarranted since those grievances had already been pursued and dismissed by the Supreme Court for lack of merit.

Resurrecting a Case and Challenging the Supremacy of the Apex Court

Justice Tukur stated that Owuru’s decision to revive a case that had been settled in 2019 by the Supreme Court was an attempt to create a conflict between the lower courts and the authority of the apex court.
