PEPT: Nigerians Will Celebrate If Tinubu’s Election Is Nullified — PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that if Bola Tinubu’s declaration as president is invalidated, Nigerians will take to the streets in joy.

However, the ruling party quickly responded, claiming that the PDP was hallucinating and that President Tinubu has the mandate of Nigerians and will function in that capacity as required by the Constitution.

Pedro Obaseki, the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) Director of Strategy and Research, spoke to the press ahead of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) judgement and expressed confidence in the judiciary’s ability to deliver a fair judgement that will be acceptable to the parties involved.

He also stated that because of the mounting evidence in their possession, the tribunal judges would muster the courage to address the issues raised, adding that the country’s image is at stake, which he stated the judges would not take lightly.

Obaseki, a lawyer, specifically mentioned the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) petition seeking to overturn President Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima’s victory in the 2023 election, noting that the “issue of eligibility is key.”

He said:

There is still a watershed moment and that moment might just be provided by the Allied Peoples Movement petition in this election. That does not in any way discontinue the other mounting evidence. We were here when the election took place, we were here when the election was declared and we are still waiting for those that want to celebrate, they have not celebrated.

You may be shocked that immediately there is a judgment that does not validate the supposed election of President Tinubu, people will run into the streets to celebrate; that is the truth.

Responding, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Barrister Felix Moka said:

The PDP or whoever that is thinking that the election of President Tinubu would be nullified is only hallucinating.

The president won the election clear and clean and the opposition has no evidence  against him.
