PEPC: Atiku, PDP tender documents in defense of their petition


The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Mr Abubakar Atiku along with the party on Tuesday in Abuja, opened their case at the  Presidential Election Petition Court, (PEPC) by tendering documents to support their petition.

The News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) reports that one of the documents tendered by counsel to the petitioners, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, SAN was the Form EC 8E which is the final declaration of winners result.
Jegede also tendered the Bimodal Voters Accreditation Systems Machines, (BVAS) report from all the 36 states including  the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
He also tendered Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) certified documents in respect of number of registered voters as well as number of Permanent Voter Cards, (PVC)s collected in all the 36 states including the FCT.
Having tendered the documents, the Chairman of the Court, Justice Haruna Tsammani admitted them in evidence.
Justice Tsammani subsequently adjourned the case until Wednesday for continuation of proceedings.
Atiku and the PDP approached the PEPC challenging the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as winner of the Feb. 25 Presidential Election.

Atiku urged the court to declare him winner of the election or in the alternative to cancel the election and order a fresh election due to alleged irregularities that marred the poll in thousands of polling units.
