Presidential election results from eight states have been admitted by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal submitted by the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi. The evidence was presented by the Lead counsel to Obi on Friday. The counsel continued with evidence (election results) from Rivers and Kogi states, presenting certified true copies of INEC election results from six local government areas (LGAs) in Rivers as evidence. Also admitted were results from Niger, Adamawa, Oyo, Bayelsa, Edo, and Lagos states tendered by the LP.
Additional evidence tendered by the petitioner are from eight LGAs in Bayelsa, 31 LGAs in Oyo, and 18 LGAs in Edo. The Labour Party also presented further evidence from 20 LGAs in Lagos, where they argued their votes were under-counted. The affected 20 LGAs include Apapa, Lagos Island, Lagos mainland, Ikorodu, Amuwo Odofin, Ibeju lekki, Ikeja, Ifako- Ijaye, Kosofe, and Oshodi-Isolo.
Again, counsels to the first, second and third respondents objected to the admissibility of the evidence. However, the court admitted the documents as evidence, while awaiting the arguments of the respondents who are opposed to the admissibility of the documents. Apart from evidence from Rivers and Kogi states, the petitioner also presented additional certified true copies of Election results from Bida LGA of Niger state, and  21 LGAs in Adamawa state.
Obi and his party’s National Chairman, Julius Abure, arrived in court around 9:20 am for continuation of the hearing at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal. At Thursday’s proceeding, the Labour Party candidate tendered results from 115 local government areas (LGAs) as part of his evidence to back his claims, but the respondents opposed the evidence tendered by the Labour Party candidate. The LP and its candidate are challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election. Tinubu, 71, was declared the winner with 8,794,726 votes. His closest rival, 76-year-old former Vice President Atiku Abubakar (PDP), got 6,984,520 votes, Obi finished the race with 6,101,533.
