Good morning, Nigeria, welcome to Naija News roundup of Presidential Election Tribunal news headlines for today Tuesday, May 21th, 2019.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday, May 20, restated its confidence that its 2019 presidential candidate, Alh Atiku Abubabar will emerge victorious at the presidential election tribunal. The major opposition party, however, called on the panel to ensure its proceedings are free and fair.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, have filed a fresh application for access to the information contained in the smart card readers and “central server”, which it said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) used for the conduct of the disputed election. They filed the application before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, where their petition challenging President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress’ victory at the poll is pending.
Segun Sowunmi, a spokesperson for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has told the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to name leaders of the opposition it accused of promoting crisis and acts of treason against the nation. In an open letter which he addressed to the federal government on Sunday, Sowunmi said if the government failed to name the suspected opposition leaders, it would imply that the administration was a victim of “a Frustration-Aggression-Displacement Theory.”
