Dele Momodu Reacts To President Buhari’s Victory At The Election Tribunal

 Media Mogul, Dele Momodu has reacted to the Presidential Election Tribunal judgment affirming President Buhari as the legitimate winner of the February 2019 elections.

The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday, dismissed the petition of Atiku Abubakar challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election, in its entirety.

The five-man panel of justices led by Justice Mohammed Garba, held that the petitioners (Atiku, PDP) failed to “evidently prove” their case beyond “reasonable doubt.”

The tribunal insisted that the allegations levelled under issues 4 and 5 (above) were criminal in nature that must be proved beyond reasonable doubt.

The tribunal also said the petitioners failed to discharge the burden of proof that Buhari was not elected by a majority of lawful votes.

Three members of the five-man panel of justices agreed with the lead judge (Mohammed Garba) in his ruling.

The Tribunal, therefore, stroke out the entire petition of Atiku and the PDP against Buhari and the APC, for lacking merit, and failure to evidently prove their case beyond reasonable doubt.

Reacting to the development, Dele Momodu said; “Experience is the best teacher... Our country is too complex and complicated... If MKO ABIOLA could be turned from the winner to a prisoner, nothing can shock me again...”
