The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal has ruled that the Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, failed to specify how they secured the majority of lawful votes in the February 25 presidential election, News About Nigeria reports.
Delivering the lead judgment, Justice Abba Bello Mohammed emphasised that the LP had made generalised allegations of irregularities, voter suppression and corrupt practices aimed at undermining their votes, particularly in states such as Rivers, Benue, Lagos, Taraba, Imo, and Osun.
However, the LP was unable to provide specific information regarding the affected polling units.
Furthermore, Justice Mohammed highlighted that the LP had not substantiated its allegations of overvoting against the All Progressives Congress (APC) or proven that their actual votes had been reduced.
