Fear Grips Buhari, As Atiku Celebrates His 2019 Presidential Victory In Advance

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  Atiku Abubakar, has on Tuesday, expressed hope that the Election Petition Tribunal will deliver judgement in his favour, on Wednesday.
“We are hopeful of the judgement of the Tribunal”, Atiku’s Spokesman Paul Ibe, said in a statement.
“It is not about Atiku or the PDP, it is about you and me, every Nigerian, that we are hopeful Atiku will be declared winner.”
Atiku Abubakar, is challenging the election result in which the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared President Muhammadu Buhari winner.
INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, stated that Buhari polled 15,191,847 votes, to defeat Atiku, who polled 11,262,978 votes.
However, Atiku and the PDP said that the election was ‘massively’ rigged.
While both Atiku and Buhari await the Justice Muhammed Lawan Garba-led Tribunal judgement, on Wednesday, September 11, Ibe said: “Atiku and PDP are optimistic that the voice of the people is upheld.”

He, however, did not disclose Atiku’s next line of action, if the Tribunal affirms Buhari’s victory at the Presidential election.
During the Tribunal hearings, Atiku and the PDP contended with the election results, that the data obtained from INEC’s server showed that they polled a total of 18,356,732 votes, to defeat Buhari whom they said scored 16,741,430 votes.
INEC, nonetheless, said that it has no server where the election results were transmitted during the February 23, Presidential election.
They also alleged that Buhari lied on oath when he claimed that he has 3 certificates, but could not produce even a photocopy to support his Form CF001, submitted to INEC during clearance.
Atiku and the PDP had also alleged irregularities, including intimidation of electorate, as well as alteration of election results during and after the election, respectively.

Atiku called 62 witnesses out of the 400 initially pencilled to buttress his claims.
On the other hand, Buhari called 6. However, both INEC and the APC did not call any witness. Counsel to INEC, Yunus Usman, SAN, told the Tribunal that it was not necessary to call witnesses, having extracted useful information from evidence given by the Petitioners’ witnesses.
However, INEC’s Lawyer debunked the use of the electronic devices in the conduct of the election.
Atiku’s Lawyers led by Livy Uzoukwu, in addition to calling 62 witnesses, also tendered some documents, including Form CF 001, where President Muhammadu Buhari supplied his personal information to INEC for clearance, to enable him to stand for the February 23 Presidential election.

In the said Form CF 001, President Buhari claimed that he has three certificates, including his Primary School Leaving Certificate, West African School Certificate, as well as the Cadet Officer Certificate; but he did not attach copies of the said documents to his form.
His explanation, however, was that in 1962, when he joined the Nigerian Army, himself and his colleagues were ordered to submit all their original certificates to the Nigerian Army Board.
Buhari’s Lawyer, Wale Olanipekun, SAN, said that evidence cleared the doubt over his client’s certificate controversies.
“After all, no law stipulated presentation of certificates as a prerequisite for the qualification to contest election for the Office of the President”, he told the Tribunal.
