President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, on Tuesday appeared as a defence witness at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja.
This news medium understands that Kyari is Buhari’s third witness as the Nigerian leader opened his defence against the petition of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The country’s electoral umpire, Independent National Electoral Commission, had announced President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner with 15,191,847 votes with Atiku getting 11, 262,978.
But Atiku and the PDP claim that results from a purported INEC server showed that he scored 18,356,732 as against Buhari’s 16,741,430 votes.
However, INEC said it did not transmit results electronically.
