PEPT judgement: 25% of FCT votes not needed to win Presidential election

Vote-1536x1024
The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) has dismissed the claim of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), that President Bola Tinubu needed 25 per cent votes from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to win the February 25 election.

Justice Haruna Tsammani said FCT residents have no special privilege, hence such claims can’t stand.

He was reacting to Obi’s petition faulting the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the last presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
