Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), was unable to identify the several polling units where anomalies were noted during the February election on Wednesday.
This was a submission made at the Abuja Presidential Election Petition Tribunal hearing.
Obi was found to have made an all-encompassing charge of electoral fraud, according to Justice Abba Mohammed, who delivered the ruling on Wednesday.
Mohammed added that by failing to identify the quantity of suppressed ballots, the petitioners had failed to demonstrate that their votes had been disregarded.
The judge decided that despite Obi and LP’s claims that they received the majority of valid votes cast, they did not disclose how many valid votes they received.
“The petitioners failed to state the number of votes affected and the number of people disenfranchised. They also failed to prove that their votes were suppressed by failing to specify the number of votes suppressed.
“The determination of the election is about figures,” the judge said.
