The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, has reacted to PDP decision to further seek redress at the apex court after the outcome of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal seem not satisfactory to the party and their Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Why the APC chairman Oshiomhole commended the Tribunal’s ruling which upheld President Muhammadu Buhari’s election. However, he added, we are ever ready meet PDP anywhere they chose, President Muhammadu Buhari will always defeat Atiku.
According to him, even if Atiku and the opposition party go to the World Court if permissible by law, the APC is ready to meet them there.
Oshiomhole, however, criticised the PDP presidential candidate and asked Nigerians to resist western prescriptions capable of ruining the country.
President Buhari defeated former Vice-President Atiku in the keenly contested presidential election on February 23.
Dissatisfied with the outcomes of the poll, the PDP and its candidate took to the Tribunal to challenge the re-election of the President.
The PDP and Atiku also alleged irregularities in the conduct of the poll, deployment of electronic voting, over-voting, substantial non-compliance with the electoral law, as well as the use of security agencies to rig the election in favour of the President.
After months of proceedings and presentation of witnesses and a series of evidence at the Tribunal, a five-man panel of judges led by Justice Mohammed Garba dismissed the petition by the PDP and Atiku in its entirety.
In a unanimous judgement, the Tribunal held that the parties were to bear their respective cost.
Justice Garba affirmed that President Buhari was the winner of the presidential election.
Other members of the Tribunal included Justice Peter Olabisi-Ige, Justice Abdul Aboki, Justice Joseph Ikyegh, and Justice Samuel Oseji, who all agreed with the lead judgement.
