Prince Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a recent statement alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will be shocked by the revelations the PDP will present at the tribunal.
According to Secondus, the decision to challenge the outcome of the February 23 Presidential Poll was in the interest of the nation, adding that the party would have accepted defeat if Buhari had won in a free and fair election.
The PDP Chairman further urged Nigerians to be patient, saying that the legal team were already preparing the document to file at the tribunal.
“We will shock both Buhari and the APC at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal with facts and figures. We will also show videos and other ways through which the APC, INEC and the military collaborated to rig the election.
“The world and the entire country will see the details of what happened. We will reveal what they never believed we saw.
“No need to take issue with them. They (APC) claimed that they have evidence of fraud allegedly committed by the PDP as well. We will wait for them to come up with their lies.
“Unfortunately for them, the courts are not where propaganda will sway facts. Let them come with propaganda, we will hit them with facts and figures.”
As for when the party would file their papers, the PDP Chairman said; “The Electoral Act stipulates that. We will beat the time. So, don’t be in a hurry.”
Meanwhile, Mr. Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), the man spearheading the legal team inaugurated by Atiku to challenge the outcome of the presidential poll, has revealed that work had begun and the case would be filed soon.
Mr. Uzouwku when asked when the case would be filed said; “All I can tell you for now is that we are already working on it and we would file it as soon as it is ready.
“Don’t forget this is a presidential election that covers all Nigeria. This is not a governorship, House of Representatives or senatorial election. We are talking about the whole of Nigeria.”
He further noted that Atiku was still within the timeline to file his petition, adding that the law provides 21 days from the day of the declaration of results.
