PEPT Judgement Day: Peter Obi, LP Failed to State Number of Lawful Votes They Scored – Tribunal

The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) has said although the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi claimed to have scored the majority of lawful votes cast, they failed to state the number of lawful votes they scored.

Justice Abba Mohammed made this disclosure while reading judgement on the petition filed by the Labour Party and Peter Obi petition, challenging the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.

The tribunal said the petitioners only made “generic accusations of irregularities in the election but failed to specify the anomaly, the places where it occurred and those affected.

“They failed to state the number of votes affected and the number of people disenfranchised.

“They also failed to prove that their votes were suppressed by failing to specify the number of votes suppressed.

“The determination of election is about figures,” Justice Mohammed said while reading the judgement.

The judgement is still being read at the time of filing this report, but from all indications it appears Peter Obi and Labour Party are likely to lose the petition.
