PDM Drops Petition Against Buhari, APC
One of the opposition parties challenging the election victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the February 23 presidential election has withdrawn its petition.
The Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM), on Wednesday, applied to withdraw its petition challenging the outcome of the 2019 presidential election in Nigeria.
Naija News recalls the party had approached the presidential election tribunal, to challenge Buhari and the All Progressives Congress’s (APC) victory as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
However, at the resumed hearing on Wednesday, Aliyu Lemu, the lawyer to PDM, told the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) that his client has instructed him to apply to withdraw the petition.
The lawyer then moved the application.
