Presidential tribunal dismisses case of alleged rigging by Peter Obi

The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has thrown out the allegation by the Labour Party and its candidate, Peter Obi, that the 2023 presidential election was manipulated to favour President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday, September 6.

The ruling delivered by Justice Abba Mohammed, said that Obi and the Labour Party did not provide credible evidence nor establish their allegation that the election was manipulated.

The court noted that although Obi and the LP, insisted that the election was rigged in 18, 088 polling units across the nation, they were unable to give specific details of where the alleged irregularities took place.

It held that different parts of the petition where the allegations were contained were “vague, imprecise, nebulous and bereft of particular materials.”
