Political parties and groups on Wednesday reacted to the judgement of Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) which ruled in favour of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Justice Garba Mohammed who read the unanimous judgment dismissed the petition filed by the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his party.
The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) in its reaction commended members of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) “for not being deterred by threats and intimidation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its agents to taint its sense of justice.”
In a statement by signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke said the pronouncement of the justices was “proof that the Justices are men of honour that cannot be intimidated by social media bullies bent on arm-twisting them to ignore the evidence tabled before the tribunal.
“It was glaring to everyone, aside from PDP elements, that the petition challenging the overwhelming electoral victory of President Muhammadu Buhari was not only frivolous but also useless as Festus Keyamo famously said soon after the case was filed.
