The Peoples Democratic Party,PDP has vowed to probe the victory of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (Retd.) in the presidential election as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC on Tuesday, March 31, 2015.
The party’s agent, Bello Fadile, at the National Collation Centre in Abuja had refused to sign the result sheet even after President Goodluck Jonathan, conceded defeat and congratulated the president elect.
A Punch report said that Fadile who was in attendance when parties were being called to sign the result sheet maintained that the outcome of the election was unsatisfactory, hence the need for them to challenge it the election tribunal.
He said, “Whether I sign it (the result sheet) or I don’t sign it, does not make any difference. It doesn’t invalidate the result. When we go to court, then we can challenge the result.”
He added that the party had already filed a petition and would follow it up until justice prevails.
He said, “The party petitioned. Don’t forget. So the party will follow through the petition. There are rules for this. The law is there.
“The result was declared on the 1st of April, I think. We will follow the due process. Like the president (Jonathan) said, ‘If you have any grievances, follow due process and the due process in this instance is to go to the tribunal.”
