Summary of the case filed against President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) by Peter Obi and the Labour Party.

In a judgment that lasted over five hours, Justice Haruna Tsammani who delivered the judgment trashed each point one by one.

Below is the summary:

*Allegation of double nomination against Vice-President Kashim Shettima was false

*Mr Tinubu was qualified to contest the 25 February election

*10 out of 13 witnesses of Peter Obi not competent to testify as they were not frontloaded in compliance with the law

*EU report on the outcome of the 2023 election inadmissible. It needed to be tendered by EU, the author of the document.

*The reports tendered by Mr Obi’s expert witnesses useless .

*The US court forfeiture Tinubu’s $460,000 does not disqualify him from running for the presidency.

*Failure of INEC to upload the copies of polling unit results to IReV real time does not invalidate the election.

*INEC is not bound to transmit election results electronically.

*No evidence to show that INEC deliberately refused to upload copies of polling unit results to IReV to manipulate it.

  • Obi fails to prove the allegations that INEC failed to comply with the Electoral Act in the conduct of the election.

*No solid evidence to back allegations of suppression of votes, wrong computation of results, manipulation of results, and inflation of results, corrupt practices.

*Insistence that Tinubu must win 25 per cent of votes in the FCT a parochial interpretation of section 134(2) of the Nigerian constitution and also fallacious.
