Presidential Election Judgment: FCT Senator Speaks on Abuja 25% Ahead of Supreme Court Hearing.
Senator Ireti Kingibe, representing the FCT, has commented on the outcome of the presidential election petition court on the 25% of the vote in the FCT. Kingibe told her constituents that if the decision of the Supreme Court goes in line with the PEPC, the indigene of Abuja will have to push for governor in the FCT .
Recall that the PEPC dismissed the petition that the presidential candidate must gather 25% in the FCT before being declared as the winner, adding that the federal capital did not enjoy special status
“After the matter has been disposed of at the Supreme Court and if the same position is maintained, then we will agitate for a governor, three senators and other status of a state, but for now, let the matter remain as it is.” Before the court’s ruling, Peter Obi and the Labour Party’s supporters insisted that President Tinubu could be removed because he did not get 25 per cent in Abuja.
