Obi, LP’s Petition Against Tinubu On 25% Votes Requirement In FCT Irrelevant – Tribunal



The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal has declared that the Federal Capital Territory does not hold a higher status than other states in the country.

This was said by Justice Haruna Tsammani, the panel’s chief judge, at the tribunal’s meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.

He asserts that in order to meet the requirements of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended), a presidential candidate must receive a majority of the votes cast in a presidential election in which two or more candidates are running, as well as at least 25% in two-thirds of the 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
