A petition by the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and the party alleging irregularities in the February 25 election has been dismissed by the presidential election tribunal sitting in Abuja.

One of the five justices, Abba Mohammed, while reading the ruling on the petition said the petitioners made generic allegations of irregularities against the respondent without specifying the polling units

“The petitioners allege irregularities and will use spreadsheets, inspection reports, and forensic analysis as evidence in the trial.

“The documents promised by the petitioners were not attached to the petition and served on the respondents,” he added.

The Justice ruled that Obi and the Labour Party did not adequately detail their allegations of corrupt practices, vote suppression, fictitious results, and other irregularities in their petition.
