The Presidential Election Tribunal on Monday admitted 48 compact video discs in evidence from the PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the suit challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s victor.
The tribunal also ordered viewing of the discs in open court.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday rejected the request of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate in the February 23 election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to play a video evidence presented by its 40th witness.
The PDP and his presidential candidate at the poll, Atiku, are by their petition, challenging the victory of Buhari and the APC at the poll.
The five-man tribunal led by Justice Mohammed Garba gave the permission after petitioners’ lawyer, Chief Chris Uche (SAN), had earlier presented three witnesses, and then he introduced the media adviser and spokesperson for Atiku, Mr. Segun Showunmi, whose testimony would include the losing of a video clip to the tribunal.
He went on to tender 48 documents including video compact discs scheduled to be played at the Monday’s hearing.
Counsel for the three respondents – Yunus Usman (SAN) for INEC, Alex Izinyon (SAN) for Buhari, and Adeniyi Akintola (SAN) for APC – had opposed the application to play the video clips.
They also objected to the admissibility of the entire 48 proposed exhibits.
