New Facts Emerge as Judgement Day Nears: Tribunal Declares Peter Obi the Winner over Tinubu, Citing Abuja’s 25 Percent Rule.

As the judgement day draws close, a fresh fact has emerged regarding the declaration of Peter Obi as the winner over Tinubu due to the Abuja 25 percent requirement. The subject of debate revolves around whether a candidate needs to secure 25% of the votes cast in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to be declared the winner of Nigeria’s presidential election held on 25th February 2023.

Nigeria consists of 36 states and the federal capital territory. Only Peter Obi of the Labour Party received 25% of the vote in the FCT, obtaining about 59%. However, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the ruling party’s Bola Tinubu as the winner. Peter Obi has challenged this outcome, and the tribunal started hearing his case on 8th May.

According to Nigerian law, in a multi-candidate presidential election, the winner must have the highest number of votes overall and at least one-quarter of the votes in two-thirds of all states and the FCT. An 18th July Facebook post claims that the court declared Peter Obi as the winner because he met the 25% threshold. The claim attributes its source to “Arise TV news,” a Nigerian-owned television station broadcast from the UK and the USA.

Multiple reposts on Facebook support this claim, but the actual decision of the election tribunal remains uncertain.

On 4th July, local media reported that Inec presented one of its three witnesses and concluded its defense against the allegations made by Obi. As of the time of publication, this is the latest update on the case. We did not find any other reports on the matter from credible media sources, including Arise TV, stating that the elections tribunal declared Obi the winner of the presidential election. If such a significant verdict were true, it would have garnered attention in both local and international headlines. However, it appears to be false information.
