A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Jesutega Onokpasa, says Wednesday’s judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) was based on facts and not sentiments.
Onokpasa, also a lawyer, said this at a virtual news conference on Thursday in Abuja, saying that the petitioners sought legal redress to President Bola Tinubu’s election victory based on sentiments and not facts.
“The entire court process was a waste of time; the petitioners wasted our time as Nigerians, asked the court’s time and the lawyers’ time.
“The position of the law is not sentimental but factual,” he said.
Onokpasa, a member of the dissolved APC Presidential Campaign Council said that many people tried to undermine and intimidate the judiciary at the PEPC, but failed.
According to him, the ruling on 25 per cent votes in Abuja which was quite contentious had made the FCT equal to other states.
‘’The contentious 25 per cent votes in Abuja was trying to make some citizens more citizens than others,” he added.
