Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 election, has disclosed the focus of his petition at the Presidential Elections Tribunal (PET).
Obi tweeted on Monday that he intends to challenge both the electoral process of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and its declaration of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the president-elect.
Tinubu was declared the winner by INEC, having scored the highest number of votes in 12 of Nigeria’s 36 states.
However, both Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rejected the declaration and have filed a lawsuit challenging the outcome of the election.
Obi stated that he is specifically challenging the INEC electoral process that led to Tinubu’s declaration as the winner and the declaration itself.
