Atiku and PDP finally Closed Case in Petition against Buhari’s Election

Atiku Abubakar, and his party, PDP, on Friday, finally closed their case in the petition against the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku and the PDP are challenging the Independent National Electoral Commission’s declaration of Buhari as winner of the February 23 presidential election at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
The petitioners are asking the tribunal to nullify the victory of Buhari on grounds of alleged Irregularities, substantial non compliance with the electoral laws, widespread violence amongst others.
The petitioners are also asking the tribunal to declare them winner of the election based on the results obtained from INEC central server, which, according to them, revealed they scored majority of the lawful votes cast at the poll.
Though the petitioners had planned to call about 400 witnesses within the 10 days allotted to them to substantiate their claims, they were however able to call 62 witnesses and tendered over 50,000 documents to prove their case of alleged rigging over voting, non compliance with the electoral guidelines.
After long trial and massive effort the system did not allow justice to be served..
