Tribunal: Peter Obi Rigged PDP Votes In South-East – Atiku’s Witness


Ndubuisi Nwobu, a witness of Atiku Abubakar, the PDP candidate for president in the elections of February 25, has disclosed how Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, stole the poll in Anambra state.

Nwobu said that “magic happened to the votes of the PDP candidate at different collation centers” in a statement made on Wednesday to the presidential election tribunal.

According to the Independent Electoral Commission’s results, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress received 5, 111 votes, Atiku received 9,036 votes, and Peter Obi received 584, 621 votes in Anambra.

Nwobu, the Anambra PDP chairman and the party’s state collation agent, stated in court that after the vote-counting, the presiding officers refused to upload the results.

He also said he visited about 30 polling units out of the 4,720 polling units in the state on election day.

He said he was forced to sign the result sheet of the election at the state collation centre because he wouldn’t have been given a copy if he didn’t.

“I signed the result sheet when it was obvious that without signing, a copy would not be made available to me,” Nwobu said.

“Results were entered at polling units. But, every effort made to get the presiding officer to upload it on IREV proved abortive.”

When asked if result sheets were signed by agents of the PDP at polling units before there were taken to the collation centre, Nwobu said “yes”.

“They were taken to the collation centre at the ward level. That is where magic started happening,” he said.

“There were problems at the polling units with presiding officers.”

He said in some instances, he had to intervene to prevent voters and other party agents from attacking INEC officials.

“Even in certain instances, I had to intervene to ensure that some of the polling officers were not attacked by voters and other political party agents,” Nwobu said.

Nwobu is Atiku’s eleventh witness to testify before the five-member panel headed by Haruna Tsammani.
