Is this the End of Buhari, Atiku cuts Buhari/APC Celebration short

In the history of presidential elections in Nigeria, the 2019 election turned out to be one of the most keenly contested, according to observers and political analysts. One of the reasons attributed to this is that the two main contenders are both Muslims with huge following in the North, which according to INEC, is the region with higher number of voters.

It is no longer news that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku, has not accepted the results of the presidential elections and has remained adamant to concede defeat to Buhari. Recall that the opposing party, PDP cried out that Atiku has not been allowed to inspect the election materials despite the court orders which are in his favor. In light of this Atiku has pulled another stunt which most likely caught the APC party unawares.

In the alternative, the two petitioners prayed the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to nullify the poll and ordered for a fresh election that will be conducted in lines with provisions of the electoral laws.

Although a copy of the petition cannot be obtained at the filing of the report, the National Legal Adviser of the PDP Emmanuel Enoidem, confirmed to journalists at the Court of Appeal, venue of the tribunal that the petition has been filled.

He disclosed that over 400 witnesses have also been assembled to testify during the hearing of the petition.
