The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal will today, Sept. 11 deliver judgment in the case instituted by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, challenging the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The presidential election was held on February 23 and the petition challenging the election was filed on March 18 by PDP and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
They are asking the tribunal to invalidate the results initially declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, where Mr Buhari was said to have polled 15,191,847 Votes to emerge winner of the elections, Tribune reports.
PDP accused INEC of manipulating what the petitioners described as the actual results of the election to amass illegal votes for Mr Buhari and also storing the real results of the 2019 election in a central server.
They alleged that the party had investigated the actual results from the elections, stating that PDP won the presidential elections with 18,356,732 votes instead of the 11,262,978 votes declared by INEC.
