Tribunal Watches Atiku’s Video Exhibits
The Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Monday played three video clips at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja, to back some allegations raised in their petition challenging the outcome of the February 23, 2019 presidential election.
The petitioners, through their lawyer, Chief Chris Uche (SAN), played the video clips which were produced by their 40th petitioners’ witnesses, Segun Showunmi, who is the media adviser and spokesperson for Atiku.
The tribunal earlier dismissed the objection by the respondents’ lawyers to the admissibility and the playing of 48 Video Compact Discs.
Three of the video clips played on Monday included an interview a Resident Electoral Commission of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mike Igini, granted on Sunday Politics programme of Channels Television when he said the results of the election would be transmitted to INEC’s server.
Another one showed Army officials denying Buhari’s claim that his West African School Certificate was with the Army.
The third one showed INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, meeting with members of Computer Professionals Practitioners in Nigeria, expressing hope that electronic transmission would be deployed during the 2019 poll.
