- The APC and President Buhari said the PDP and Atiku failed to lead any reasonable evidence to support their claim The All Progressives Congress (APC) and its 2019 presidential candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, August 21, informed the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) that Atiku Abubakar has not denied claims by the party that he is not Nigerian. 

Making their final submissions before the tribunal the APC and President Buhari prayed the court to dismiss petition by Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party against the results of the 2019 presidential election. Speaking before the tribunal, counsel to the president, Wole Olanipekun, said the petition brought before the tribunal by the PDP and Atiku failed to lead any reasonable evidence to support their claim.

Also speaking, Lateef Fagbemi, counsel to the APC said all issues raised against Atiku’s qualification to contest for allegedly not being a Nigerian by birth, were not challenged by either Atiku himself or the PDP.

 “On the qualification of the first petitioners (Atiku). In spite of all we put before the court, they provided nothing to the contrary." “What we need is minimal proof. Nothing was put forward in the petitioners’ written address to counter this. And, I must commend them, because they have nothing to offer," Fagbemi said. 

He said the third respondent has discharge the burden on that and that the issue of the 1st petitioner’s non-qualification is effectively dealt with in the APC's written address. 3 key points from Buhari’s broadcast to the nation “To fault INEC’s position, they have the burden to show substantial non-compliance. They failed to do this. 

The implication therefore, is that there was substantial compliance with the Electoral Act in the conduct of the last presidential election,”‎ Fagbemi added.
