Tinubu Clinches Presidency as Tribunal Dismisses Obi’s Petition
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s win has been affirmed by the presidential election tribunal.
According to the tribunal, Peter Obi and the opposition Labour Party were unable to substantiate their allegations of electoral fraud against the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.
“This petition is hereby declared unmeritorious,” one of the judges said.
“The documents promised by the petitioners were not attached to the petition and served on the respondents,” he added.
Obi and the Labour Party were found to have not sufficiently described their claims of unethical behavior, voter suppression, fabricated results, and other problems in their petition, according to the Justice.
The Labour Party, in the meantime, has disputed the APC’s Bola Tinubu’s declaration as the election’s victor on February 25, 2023.
Shortly after the court’s ruling was made public, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, stated the position of the party in Abuja.
Ifoh said, “The Labour Party watched with dismay and trepidation the dismissal of petitions by the five-man panel of the Presidential Election Petition Court led by Justice Haruna Tsammani today and we reject the outcome of the judgment in its entirety because justice was not served and it did not reflect the law and the desire of the people.”
