PDP agent, Bello Fadile, reportedly stated that the party would challenge the presidential election results at the election tribunal.
According to Punch, when the final results were declared, announcing Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s new president at the National Collation Centre in Abuja on Wednesday, Fadile refused to sign the result sheet.
“Whether I sign it (the result sheet) or I don’t sign it, does not make any difference. It doesn’t invalidate the result. When we go to court, then we can challenge the result,” Fadile said.
Affirming that PDP would challenge the results, Fadile stated “Sure! The party petitioned. Don’t forget. So the party will follow through the petition. There are rules for this. The law is there. The result was declared on the 1st of April, I think. We will follow the due process. Like the president (Jonathan) said, ‘If you have any grievances, follow due process and the due process in this instance is to go to the tribunal.”
