2019 Election: Atiku started calling witnesses at the tribunal.
The Presidential candidate of the PDP during the last general election, Alhaji. Atiku Abubakar has started calling witnesses at the tribunal.
Buba Galadima was called as one of the witnesses at the Election tribunal as Atiku challenges President Buhari’s victory at the presidential election.
Buba was the first witness called at the tribunal.
During the cross-examination of the witness, Buba was subjected to a direct examination where he was asked by the counsel of the APC and Buhari, Wole Olanipekun about his credibility of being a witness.
He was asked if he fell out with the President because he wasn’t appointed as a minister in 2015.
Buba answered and said bad governance is the reason he has choosen to be a witness.
He futher said, “We made good promises to Nigerians, Including justice., and to secure the country, which he (Buhari) has failed to do.
Atiku had earlier debunk the speculation that he was Stopped By The Tribunal From Inspecting INEC Server.
In a statement released through his spokesperson, Paul Ibe said the tribunal said the request at this stage of the trial is not relevant.
The second witness called is mr Peter Uzioma Obi.
Peter claimed he was trained with others to transmit election results.
He was allegedly trained with others to transmit codes they used to transmit results to the server.
The INEC counsel Yunus Usman said, Peter had no right to transmit results as he wasn’t the presiding officer.
This was however challenged by the witness.
Peter said, “You are wrong sir, INEC trained us to trasmit results.
He confirmed he’s not a presiding officer, neither was he a polling agent.
He said he was a registration area technician appointed by INEC and was trained by INEC.
