The Presidential Election Petitions Court in Abuja, admitted a total of 337 exhibits tendered by the People’s Democratic Party, PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, challenging the emergence of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the February 25th presidential election.
At the resumed hearing in the matter, the PDP and Atiku, through their legal team, informed the court that the documents in evidence were in respect of 33 states of the federation, with the exclusion of Kaduna, Kano, Katsina and Lagos states.
However, Tinubu, through his team of lawyers, objected to the tendering of information, which according to the petitioners were extracted from the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System BVAS machines that were used for the conduct of the 2023 presidential election.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission, said it was also opposed to the admissibility of the documents but for the printout of data from BVAS it deployed to three states – Kogi, Sokoto and Rivers.
In a similar vein, the APC opposed the documents in evidence.
