The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal has admitted some presidential election results presented by the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to support its claim against the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Counsel to Peter Obi informed the court sitting in Abuja that he had a schedule of more evidence which they desire to tender before the court. He then presented certified true copies of INEC election results from six local government areas (LGAs) in Rivers as evidence. He also presented results from Kogi state elections. The court also admitted results from Niger, Adamawa, Oyo, Bayelsa, and Edo states tendered by the LP. The part also presented additional certified true copies of election results from Bida LGA of Niger and 21 LGAs in Adamawa.

The Labour Party also presented further evidence from 20 LGAs in Lagos, where they argued their votes were under-counted. The affected 20 LGAs include Apapa, Lagos Island, Lagos mainland, Ikorodu, Amuwo Odofin, Ibeju lekki, Ikeja, Ifako- Ijaye, Kosofe, and Oshodi-Isolo.

Having presented its evidence from states, Peter Afuba, SAN, who is one of the counsel to the petitioner, applied that all the certified true copies of election results tendered as evidence in the court be taken as read.

Again, the counsel to the first, second, third and fourth respondents refused to give their consent, in view of their previous objections to the admissibility of the documents.

The Labour party and its candidate are challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election.(www.naija247news.com)
