Did prove anything by the time he close his case? He tendered the same result sheets declared by INEC but failed to prove that results contained in the those results sheets are false or are showing that he has won, he failed woefully to prove that server exist,

On what basis is the perjury coming from? Personally I don’t feel Atiku has established his case.

On the basis that he lied in his INEC form that his certificates are with the military board.
On the basis that the results stated in his INEC form differ from results we have seen in documentation he has presented outside.

Buhari & APC closed their defence at tribunal.
Buhari was to continue his defence today, Thursday
But his lawyer found it unnecessary after yesterday's WAEC result shakedown

The overwhelming Atiku petition may have left the defence team of INEC, APC and Buhari in disarray to have closed their case so quickly with very very few witnesses.
If there is justice Atiku should be the clear winner.#AtikuIsComing

Buhari called six witnesses and tendered documents between Tuesday and Wednesday, who ended him contradicting themselves & made the case turn out to be a show of shame .
On this premise his Legal team has decided to close the case …#AtikuIsComing is closer than you think !
