The staff of People’s Democratic Party has passed a vote of no confidence on the Presidential Election Tribunal handling the petition of the party’s candidate for the February 23 election.
The national secretariat staff on Monday protested, demanding the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, to quit the panel handling the petition, said there was no possibility of Atiku “reclaiming his stolen mandate” with Justice Bulkachuwa as member of the panel.
Their grievance was written on placards and banners in these manners “Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, you can’t preside over your own case. Your husband is a Senator-elect under APC”, “Justice is not for the most powerful, it must be seen to be right and done”, and “On moral grounds, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, excuse yourself from the presidential petition tribunal”, among others.
Addressing newsmen at Abuja, the Chairman of PDP Staff Welfare Association, Mr Clement Nwankwo, claimed that Atiku won the February 23 presidential election but was rigged out by the All Progressives Congress.
According to Nwankwo, the APC worked closely with the INEC to rig the presidential election against the wish of the people.
