Presidential Tribunal: PDP urges tribunal to nullify Buhari’s re-election over alleged non-qualification



The People Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the presidential elections on February 23, Atiku Abubakar and his party have insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari was not qualified to have challenged the 2019 poll and, as such, should be disqualified for the Presidential Election Petition Court.

The party and its candidate also claimed that Buhari’s election was not valid since INEC and Buhari allegedly manipulated the survey.

It was also argued that there are discrepancies in the results between the exact certified copies of the EC8A forms and the voting units.

Also, the petitioners in their final speech before the court insisted that they proved all the allegations contained in their petition against the conduct of the presidential election of February 23 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In a final speech of 43 pages presented by his principal lawyer, Dr. Levy Uzoukwu SAN, Atiku and PDP claimed to have established that Buhari does not possess the necessary academic qualification for the office of President of Nigeria.

In the final speech presented on August 14, the petitioners said that even Buhari’s witnesses under cross-examination admitted that Buhari does not have a school certificate, being the basic requirements for disputing the position of president.
