Labour party rejects tribunal’s verdict

Leadership of the Labour Party has rejected the outcome of yesterday’s judgment at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal after its petitions were dismissed by the Justice Haruna Tsammani-led panel.

The development is coming a few hours after the judges threw out the petitions filed by LP lawyers, which the court said was ‘clearly based on rhetoric.’

According to report some of the claims made by the petitioners included the nullification of the declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the election for failing to score 25 per cent in the FCT; Tinubu’s incompetence to contest the election following his forfeiture in the United States; and failure of the Independent National Electoral Commission to transmit results to INEC election results viewer among others.

Reacting in a statement issued in Abuja, National Publicity Secretary of LP, Obiora Ifoh, insisted that the party will not accept the outcome of the judgment.

While urging all their supporters to remain calm, Ifoh stated that they would consult with their lawyers before the party could make its position known on the next step to take.
