The court in its ruling at the ongoing hearing of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) noted that FCT residents have no special privileges as the petitioners claimed.

In another petition filed by the LP, it alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reduced their scores and added them to APC votes.

The court ruled that the LP failed to supply particulars of what they actually scored before the said reductions, nor did they supply the polling units where it happened.
