PDP Labels Tinubu’s Legal Team’s Admission as “Self-Indicting” in Presidential Election Petition Court Judgement Controversy

In a recent development surrounding the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) judgement, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Bola Tinubu’s legal team of self-indictment. The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, issued a statement on Monday, describing the admission made by Tinubu’s legal team as a desperate attempt to deflect public scrutiny and prevent further revelations.

The controversy arose when images of the Certified True Copies (CTC) of the PEPC judgement began circulating online. These images revealed an inscription that read “Tinubu Presidential Legal Team” (TPLT). While Tinubu’s legal team claimed that this was a watermark they added to their own copies of the judgement, the PDP expressed skepticism and challenged their explanation.

According to the PDP, the majority of Nigerians were not convinced by the claims made by Tinubu’s legal team. The opposition party argued that further examination and expert analysis revealed that the documents were not scanned and that the TPLT inscriptions were not watermarks but rather a computer default header.

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has meticulously examined the scandalous inscription of the Header of Tinubu Presidential Legal Team (TPLT) on the Certified True Copies (CTC) of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) judgement currently in circulation,” the PDP statement read.

The PDP went on to assert that the admission by Tinubu’s legal team, acknowledging that they “scanned and watermarked” their copy of the judgement, only served to strengthen the public’s suspicion of pre-determined manipulation by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The PDP demanded that Tinubu’s legal team provide an explanation as to why a default header on their computer system should be accepted as a watermark. The party’s insistence on further clarification suggests that they are not satisfied with the response provided by Tinubu’s legal team.

The controversy surrounding the PEPC judgement has added fuel to the already intense political climate in Nigeria. The judgement itself affirmed President Bola Tinubu’s election victory, dismissing the petitions filed by Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP). However, the revelation of the TPLT inscription on the CTCs has raised questions about the integrity of the judgement and the fairness of the electoral process.

As the controversy unfolds, Nigerians eagerly await a resolution to the conflicting claims made by both parties. The outcome of this dispute will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for the credibility of the judicial system and the democratic process in Nigeria.

The controversy surrounding the PEPC judgement is a reminder of the importance of public scrutiny and the need for thorough investigations into any potential irregularities. The Nigerian people deserve to have confidence in their electoral process and trust that their votes are being accurately and fairly counted.

As the PDP and Tinubu’s legal team continue to exchange arguments and counter-arguments, it is essential for the truth to prevail. Only through a transparent and unbiased investigation can the Nigerian people regain faith in the electoral system and ensure that their voices are heard.
