President Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have wrapped up their defence at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja. This development came during the resumed sitting on Wednesday, in response to the petition filed by Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the February presidential election.
Counsels representing President Tinubu and the APC informed the court that they had presented their case effectively through their star witness, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele. They stated that there was no need to call further witnesses in the matter.
During his testimony, Senator Bamidele, who was invited as the star witness, stated that there were no records of criminal proceedings or convictions against Senator Bola Tinubu in the United States of America. Additionally, he informed the court that there was a discrepancy of ten thousand, nine hundred and twenty-nine votes in the recorded votes for Senator Tinubu in Kano State.
Following Senator Bamidele’s testimony, the counsels representing Tinubu concluded their defence, indicating that they have presented sufficient evidence to support their case. The next steps in the proceedings will be determined by the tribunal.
As the trial continues, all eyes are on the Election Petitions Tribunal to deliver a fair and just ruling based on the evidence and arguments presented by both parties involved in the case.
