Tribunal: Atiku, Not Buhari, Won Katsina State, PDP Party Chair Says

The State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Katsina State, Salisu Maijigiri, has said that the PDP presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, defeated the All Progressives Congress’ Muhammadu Buhari in Katsina State in the 2019 presidential election. .

He made the claim on Tuesday while speaking at the Presidential Election Tribunal, in Abuja.

Atiku and his party, are by their petition filed before the five-man tribunal led by Justice Mohammed Garba, challenging the victory of Buhari and the All Progressives Congress at the poll.

At the resume of hearing at the tribunal today, the petitioners summoned their eighth witness, Maijigiri, who said he served as the party’s collation agent in the state for the presidential election in Katsina State.

He said results collated by his party in the state showed that APC polled 872,000 while PDP scored 905,000.


Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had announced that the PDP polled 160,203 votes while the APC polled 1,505,633.

But Maijigiri said,”We (PDP) are the one who won the election not APC.

“APC scored 872,000 and PDP scored, 905,000.

“These are our own results, we collated in our state not the ones from the server.”
