Justice validates Buhari election in Nigeria

Almost 200 days after the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, the justice validated Wednesday its victory contested by the opposition.

According to Judge Mohammed Garba, the petition calling for the annulment of the results of the presidential election was entirely rejected.

He stated that the complainants had not gathered enough evidence to substantiate their accusations of failures in the electronic system. Atiku Abubakar, of the People Democratic Party (PDP), the defeated candidate had denounced a “parody of an election”, tainted according to him of many “irregularities and cheating”.

The PDP, which has called on its activists to remain calm, has promised to appeal to the Supreme Court.

In a statement, the “confirmed winner” said that this decision delivered justice without fear and favoritism.
