Atiku claims 4 states were STOLEN from him during 2019 polls

The Presidential Candidate of the PDP, made claims that he won in four states that the INEC declared were won by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku Abubakar made this known in his “state to state computation” contained in his electoral petition which was filed earlier this week.

According to him, the states are Kogi, Kaduna, Gombe and Niger.

It would be recalled that on the 27th of February, the electoral commission declared that the candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari won the election in 19 states with a total of 15,191,847 votes to defeat Mr Abubakar, who won the election in 18 states and a total votes of 11,262,978.

The victory margin was a total of 3,928,869 votes.

The result is being challenged in court by Mr. Abubakar. It was also reported how he brought together lawyers at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja so as to prove his case.

In his petition, the PDP Candidate claimed that from the INEC server “state to state computation”, he polled 18,356,732 votes to defeat Mr Buhari whom he said scored 16,741,430 votes with a margin of 1,615,302 votes.

Claims were also made in his petition that he won 21 states, which excludes the results from Rivers state, which he stated was not made available on INEC’s server as at 25th of February, when the computation was carried out.

He claims that Mr Buhari won the election in only 15 states.


Claim, counter-claim

According to the results which was announced by INEC, the states Mr Buhari won are listed as Bauchi, Borno, Ekiti, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Kogi, Kwara, Lagos, Nasarawa, Niger, Ogun, Osun, Sokoto, Yobe and Zamfara.

Mr Abubakar won in Abia, Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Benue, Cross River, Delta, Ebonyi, Edo, Enugu, Imo, Ondo, Oyo, Plateau, Rivers, Taraba and the FCT.

Mr Abubakar now claims he won the electoral tussle in Gombe, Niger, Kogi and Kaduna states.
