We’ll shock Buhari at election petitions tribunal - PDP

Peoples Democratic Party has said it will shock President Muhammadu Buhari and ruling APC with what it called “shocking revelations” at the tribunal.

It said that its decision to challenge Mr Buhari’s victory at the tribunal was taken in the interest of the nation and not that the former ruling party was embarking on what it called an academic exercise.

PDP national chairman, Mr Uche Secondus, who spoke with one of our correspondents, asked Nigerians to be patient, adding that the team of lawyers put together by the party and Mr Abubakar were already working hard to file their papers at the tribunal.

He said PDP and Atiku would have conceded defeat if Buhari had won the February 23 presidential election fair and square.

Secondus insisted that PDP and Atiku were robbed of their victory by APC, which he alleged, was aided by the military and officials of Independent National Electoral Commission.

Secondus said, “We will shock both Buhari and APC at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal with facts and figures. We will also show videos and other ways through which APC, INEC and the military collaborated to rig the election.

“The world and the entire country will see the details of what happened. We will reveal what they never believed we saw.

“No need to take issue with them. They (APC) claimed that they have evidence of fraud allegedly committed by the PDP as well. We will wait for them to come up with their lies.

“Unfortunately for them, the courts are not where propaganda will sway facts. Let them come with propaganda, we will hit them with facts and figures.”

Asked when the party and the candidate would file their papers, Secondus said, “The Electoral Act stipulates that. We will beat the time. So, don’t be in a hurry.”
