The Peoples Democratic Party has vowed to challenge the outcome of the presidential election in which Gen. Muhammadu Buhari emerged the winner.
The agent of the PDP, Bello Fadile, who refused to sign the result at the National Collation Centre in Abuja on Wednesday, told journalists shortly after the result was declared that the party was not satisfied with the outcome of the election and had decided to challenge it at the election tribunal.
“Whether I sign it (the result sheet) or I don’t sign it, it does not make any difference. It doesn’t invalidate the result. When we go to court, then we can challenge the result,” Fadile said.
When asked to confirm if the PDP will challenge the result at the presidential election petitions tribunal, Fadile added, “Sure! The party petitioned. Don’t forget. So the party will follow through the petition. There are rules for this. The law is there.
“The result was declared on the 1st of April, I think. We will follow the due process. Like the president (Jonathan) said, ‘If you have any grievances, follow due process and the due process in this instance is to go to the tribunal.”
