The Supreme Court has said a presidential candidate does not need to get at least 25 per cent of votes in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to be declared winner.

Justice Iyang Okoro affirmed the Appeal Court’s judgement that the FCT has no special status and President Bola Tinubu doesn’t need 25% votes in FCT to be President.

The Supreme Court, therefore, agreed with the appellate court that the 25 per cent claim by candidates of the PDP and LP, Atiku Abubakar, and Peter Obi respectively, was immaterial.
