The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday said that it has water-tight evidence against the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the petition they filed at the Presidential Election Tribunal.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, at a press conference in Abuja, boasted that the party’s “facts and body of evidence are incontrovertible.

“Our party restates its confidence in the ability of the judiciary to discharge its constitutional duty dispassionately based on the evidence before it,” he said.

Ologunagba disclosed that at the pre-hearing session on Tuesday, the PDP legal team announced the filing of a motion on notice before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, requesting for a live broadcast of the proceedings of the court.

According to him, “This application, which is innocuous, is in the interest of openness which is an essential ingredient of participatory democracy especially as Nigerians are desirous of being directly involved at every stage of the electoral process.”

He maintained that the majority of Nigerians voted “massively for Atiku Abubakar and they want that mandate retrieved and restored to the PDP and its candidate.”

He called on “Nigerians to remain at alert, informed and law-abiding as we commence this crucial phase in the quest to rescue, rebuild and redirect our nation from the misrule of the APC.”
