APC to Tribunal: Atiku’s suit is fundamentally defective, strike it out

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday urged the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to strike out the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Buhari winner of the Feb. 23 Presidential Election.

Atiku and his party had, in their petition, which has INEC, Buhari and the APC as first to third respondents asked the tribunal to nullify Buhari’s election on the grounds of alleged malpractices and gross violation of Electoral Act 2010, as amended
