Earlier today, INEC Chairman, Prof Attahiru Jega announced the winner of the 2015 presidential elections. and he called on each party agent to the podium to sign the final collation result.
All agents signed the sheet and only the PDP agent refused to sign. He just spoke to Jega, shook his hands and walked away.
PDP agent, Bello Fadile told reporters that “Whether I sign it (the result sheet) or I don’t sign it, does not make any difference. It doesn’t invalidate the result. When we go to court, then we can challenge the result,”
On whether PDP will challenge the result at the presidential election petitions tribunal, Fadile said “Sure, the party petitioned. Don’t forget. So the party will follow through the petition. There are rules for this. The law is there.
“The result was declared on the 1st of April, I think. We will follow the due process.
Like the president Jonathan said, ‘If you have any grievances, follow due process and the due process in this instance is to go to the tribunal.”
