Dyepkazah Shibayan

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has tendered a total of 1,353 result sheets at the presidential election petitions tribunal.

At the tribunal on Friday, Chris Uche, counsel to the petitioners, explained that the results sheets comprised of EC8As and EC8Bs from 11 states.

While EC8A is final result for a polling unit, EC8B is the final result at the ward level.

The PDP counsel said the EC8As are 1,266 and the EC8Bs are 87 in number.

“We have EC8As and Bs. The EC8As are 1,266 and the EC8Bs are 87 in number,” he said.

“We have 38 receipts as payments for the documents.”

However, Yunus Usman, counsel of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) objected to admission of the documents as evidence.

Usman said reasons for objecting to the admission of the result sheets would be contained in their final written address.

“We object to the admissibility of these documents. [Reasons] will be in our final address,” he said.

Lateef Fagbemi, counsel of the All Progressives Congress (APC), also objected to the admission of the documents.

“We object and reason for our objection will be till the end of time in this case,” he said.

The tribunal led by Mohammed Garba admitted the documents as evidence.
