Kemi Daisi, FCT Presidential Elections Petitions  Tribunal this morning reserved judgment in the suit filed by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party challenging the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The five-man panel of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal headed by Justice Mohammed Garba reserved judgment to a date to be communicated to all the parties involved in the petition.

Dr Levi Uzoukwu(SAN) who led the petitioners’ legal team did insist in his final written address that the claim by President Buhari that he submitted his certificates to the Military Board had been refuted by the Secretary to the Military Board.

However, lawyers  to INEC, President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, urged the Tribunal to dismiss the petition with substantial cost for lacking in merit and substance, arguing that the nation’s law only requires a candidate to be educated up to secondary school level or its equivalent.
