Buhari won the Presidential election with 15,191,847 votes while Atiku had 11,262,978 votes.
The PDP and its presidential candidate rejected the result which led to them taking the case to court
On the 6th of March, 2019, the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal ordered the Independent National Electoral commission (INEC) to allow Atiku inspect the electoral materials used for the presidential election.
However, on Saturday, 16th of March, 2019, raised an alarm saying that INEC has refused to grant its presidential candidate access to inspect the material
According to the information gathered, the electoral body said it will allow Atiku inspect the elections materials ‘if and when’ it receives the court order.
On Monday, 18th of March, 2019, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar assembled 400 witnesses to testify against the All Progressive Candidate and President Elect, Muhammadu Buhari and challenge his victory
The National Legal Adviser of the PDP, Mr. Emmanuel Enoidem said,
“The petition is well packaged. The depositions are well put together. More than 400 witnesses are going to testify in this petition. Nigerians are at home with what happened on February in this country, the sham they called election”
