A total of 118 exhibits have been presented before the five-member panel of the Presidential Election Petition Court by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, in his case against President Bola Tinubu.
Atiku and the PDP approached the tribunal to challenge the Independent National Electoral Commission’s declaration of Tinubu, who contested under the All Progressives Congress, as the winner of the February 25 election. Tinubu emerged as the winner of the election with 8,794,726 votes.
Atiku and the PDP, in their claims against Tinubu, stated that the president was “not duly elected by the majority of lawful votes cast at the election.”
They also alleged that the president “was, at the time of the election, not qualified to contest”.
Eyitayo Jegede, one of Atiku’s lawyers, presented the court with his first set of exhibits at the commencement of the hearing on Tuesday.
