BREAKING: Buhari, APC End Defence In Presidential Election Dispute

President Muhammadu Buhari and the Congress of All Progressives (APC) have closed their defense in the petition of Atiku Abubakar and the People Democratic Party (PDP) before the Presidential Court of Erection Petition (PEPC).

Buhari’s principal lawyer, Wole Olanipekun (SAN) and APC’s chief lawyer, Lateef Fagbemi, announced that the second and third respondents (Buhari and APC) were closing their defense in the case.

Buhari called six witnesses and handed out documents between Tuesday and Wednesday.

He was expected to resume his defense today when his lawyer told the court that, after reviewing his case and the evidence carried out so far, he was satisfied that he had done enough to get the victory.

Fagbemi, who spoke later, also spoke similarly with Olanipekun and said the third respondent also decided to close his case.
