Trouble for President Buhari as four presidential candidates petition election tribunal 

Like Atiku Abubakar, three other presidential hopefuls have also dragged President Buhari before the election tribunal

President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election has again faced another shaky challenge as three other candidates at the recently held presidential elections have approached the election petition tribunal to nullify his election. 

In separate petitions submitted to the tribunal sitting in Abuja, the presidential candidates are asking the tribunal to void the outcome of the February 23rd elections that returned President Buhari as winner.

It would be recalled that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar had earlier approached the court to declare him winner instead of Buhari who he said manipulated results in conjunction with the electoral body, INEC. 

BlackBox Nigeria discovered that the three presidential hopefuls who have approached the tribunal are candidates of Peoples Democratic Movement; Pastor Haminchi Habu, Hope Democratic Party; Chief Ambrose Owuru and the Coalition for Change (C4C), Geff Chizee Ojinka.
