THE Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday held that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the PDP have failed to prove the onus on the non-qualification of president Muhammadu Buhari to contest the Feb. 23 general election.

Delivering judgment, Justice Mohammed Garba, held that evidence before the court shows that Buhari obtained Cambridge West African Examination Council (WAEC).

Garba held that no provision of the Nigerian Constitution compels Buhari to attach his credentials to his INEC nomination form 001.

The chairman of the tribunal therefore holds that the petitioners failed to prove that the president submitted a false affidavit on his credentials to INEC. (NAN)
