The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar Atiku, along with the party on Tuesday in Abuja, opened their case at the presidential election petition court by tendering documents to support their petition.

One of the documents tendered by counsel to the petitioners, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, was Form EC 8E, which is the final declaration of the winner’s result.

Mr Jegede also tendered the Bimodal Voters Accreditation Systems Machines (BVAS) report from all 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory.

He also tendered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) certified documents regarding the number of registered voters and a number of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) collected in all 36 states, including the FCT.

Having tendered the documents, the court’s chairman, Justice Haruna Tsammani, admitted them in evidence.

Mr Tsammani subsequently adjourned the case until Wednesday for the continuation of proceedings.

Mr Atiku and the PDP approached the tribunal challenging the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 presidential election.

Mr Atiku urged the court to declare him the winner of the election or in the alternative to cancel the election and order a fresh election due to alleged irregularities that marred the poll in thousands of polling units.
