Breaking News: Tribunal Says FCT Isn’t Superior To Any State

March 18: INEC, NSA Urge Nigerians To Shun Electoral Violence

According to the presidential election petitions tribunal, the federal capital territory (FCT) is not given preferential treatment in the election because it is not superior to any state.

The tribunal ruled that the Labour Party’s (LP) interpretation of the 25 percent vote cast in the FCT is “fallacious.”

“With due respect to the petitioners’ counsel, their interpretation of the provision of the constitution regarding the 25% in Abuja is fallacious, if not completely ludicrous,” the court stated on Wednesday.
