Good morning! Here is today’s summary from Nigerian newspapers:

1. The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Wednesday, upheld the election of President Muhammadu Buhari as the actual winner of the February 23 presidential election. It also said it has come to an inevitable conclusion that the petitioners have not proved any of the grounds of the petition as known by law and consequently discarded the petition in its entirety. The court dismissed Atiku and PDP’s petition in its entirety.

2. The Federal Government, on Wednesday said all borders will continue to remain closed until border countries agreed with the Nigeria’s terms. This was stated by the Controller General of the Nigerian Customs Service Col. Hamid Ali during a border monitoring tour at Maigatari, In Jigawa state. He said border security is the key to national security. He explained that the borders were closed to checkmate three issues, including importation of arms and animations, smuggling and human trafficking. Hamid further stated that since the bordering countries cannot help Nigeria in curving the problems, Nigeria must design a way to protect its citizens.

3. A Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday cleared a Ex-Cross River Governor Mr Donald Duke of his N537,334,360.77 debt to Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) after he paid N350 million as final settlement. The court discharged its August 21 interim order which had permitted AMCON and the United Bank for Africa (UBA) to seize Duke’s properties and funds in his accounts. Justice Nicholas Oweibo cleared Duke following settlement terms filed and moved by AMCON’s legal team from Benson Reeds Legal Practitioners, Abuja. AMCON counsel, Juliet Benson, told the judge that Duke had fulfilled the terms of the out-of-court settlement and both parties had agreed to the terms.
