Atiku Didn’t Deny Not Being A Nigerian By Birth – Buhari, APC Tell Tribunal by ibk55(m) : 12:04 am On Aug 22

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and its 2019 presidential candidate,
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, August 21, informed the
Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) that Atiku Abubakar has
not denied claims by the party that he is not Nigerian.

Making
their final submissions before the tribunal the APC and President Buhari
prayed the court to dismiss petition by Abubakar and the Peoples
Democratic Party against the results of the 2019 presidential election,
Igbere TV reports.

Speaking before the tribunal, counsel to the
president, Wole Olanipekun, said the petition brought before the
tribunal by the PDP and Atiku failed to lead any reasonable evidence to
support their claim.

Olanipekun said the petitioners who have
claimed that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had a
server with which it worked with to deliver the election results, they
have failed to identify it and show the court where it is located.

Also
speaking, Lateef Fagbemi, counsel to the APC said all issues raised
against Atiku’s qualification to contest for allegedly not being a
Nigerian by birth, were not challenged by either Atiku himself or the
PDP. “On the qualification of the first petitioners (Atiku). In spite of
all we put before the court, they provided nothing to the contrary.”

“What
we need is minimal proof. Nothing was put forward in the petitioners’
written address to counter this. And, I must commend them, because they
have nothing to offer,” Fagbemi said. He said the third respondent has
discharge the burden on that and that the issue of the 1st petitioner’s
non-qualification is effectively dealt with in the APC’s written
address.

“To fault INEC’s position, they have the burden to show
substantial non-compliance. They failed to do this. The implication
therefore, is that there was substantial compliance with the Electoral
Act in the conduct of the last presidential election,”‎ Fagbemi added.
