Why we have dragged Buhari, APC to election tribunal – Peter Obi

The vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and a former Anambra state governor has said it was for the sake of Democracy, that they have dragged President Muhammadu Buhari, and the All Progressives Congress, APC to court over their “fraudulent” victory at the presidential polls.

Obi, who described the outcome of the February 23rd, presidential election as a “monumental” fraud, said via a statement on Tuesday, that going to court is the “most civilised way to seek redress” and it would be suicidal not to.

Atiku and the PDP, had on Monday, filed a petition before the presidential election tribunal, asking to be declared winner of the election or cancel it.

“By challenging the fraud, we have decided to deepen democracy the civilised way as a party and a people that believe in the rule of law,” he said.
