The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, today, admitted in evidence,
video recordings that allegedly depicted how the February 23 presidential election was
manipulated in favour of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Justice Mohammed Garba-led five-member panel tribunal admitted the 48 Video
Compact Disc into evidence, after it dismissed objections that were raised by President
Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Independent National
Electoral Commission, INEC, who are respondents to the petition that was lodged by the
Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar
Justice Garba held that all the parties had agreed during the pre-hearing stage of the
petition to only indicate their objection to any evidence sought to be tendered, and
reserve their reasons for the written address.
The tribunal held that all the parties were bound by the agreement and could not
renege or deliberately deviate from any of the terms. A big screen was earlier mounted
inside the court to enable the Justices to watch the videos.
