How Presidential election tribunal can decide Atiku, Obi, Tinubu’s cases within one week – Shehu Sani



A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has suggested how the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal can decide its case within one week.


Sani said the tribunal should give the opposition and ruling party one day each to present their case and defence.


He added that the tribunal should give the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, one day to defend its conduct during the last presidential election.


Tweeting, Sani said the tribunal should tell all three parties to swear in order to ascertain the truth.


According to the former lawmaker: “Give the opposition one day to present their case. Give the ruling party one day to defend themselves. Give INEC one day to defend themselves.


“Demand for Inec portal result. Tell all the three to swear. If this Presidential case is taken to Customary or Sharia court today justice will be done by Friday.Shikenan.”


On Monday, the presidential election petition tribunal commenced proceedings in Abuja.


Recall that Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and his counterpart in the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi are challenging the declaration of Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as winner of the February 25 presidential poll.


Atiku is asking the court, amongst others, to order the electoral body to conduct a fresh election following alleged irregularities at polling units during the presidential poll.


On his part, Obi said that Tinubu failed to win the majority of lawful votes and was unable to garner one-quarter of the votes in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
