Presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has spoken about his expectations ahead of the presidential tribunal’s judgement today, Wednesday.
Atiku and his party have filed a petition challenging the victory of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, (APC).
The former vice president, through his lawyer, Chris Uche (SAN), argued that President Tinubu was not qualified to contest the 2023 presidential election, having submitted “forged certificates,” including Chicago State University and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate with the name ‘Adekunle’.
Another aide to the former Vice-President, Paul Ibe, said Atiku and his party expect nothing else than victory.
Going further, he said the tribunal’s judgment should align with the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and the Electoral Act 2022. “We expect that the PEPT will render justice in line with the 1999 constitution as amended and all the other bodies of law that guided the election”.
