Four States Atiku Claims Were ‘Stolen’ From Him By Buhari During 2019 Presidential Poll 3

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has claimed that he won in four of the States that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared were won by President Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress.

Atiku stated this in his “State to State computation” document, contained in his electoral petition, filed earlier this week, at the 2019 Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

The States Atiku is laying claim to are: Kogi, Kaduna, Gombe, and Niger.

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

His petition also claimed that he won 21 States, excluding the results from Rivers State, which he said was not available on INEC’s server, as at February 25, when the computation was made.

He claimed that Buhari only won the election in 15 States.

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

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

However, Atiku now claims he won the electoral tussle in Gombe, Niger, Kogi and Kaduna States.

See the official INEC results below:

Kogi
Buhari: 285,894
Atiku: 218,207

Gombe
Buhari: 403,961
Atiku: 138,484

Kaduna
Buhari: 993,445
Atiku: 649,612.

Niger
Atiku: 218,052
Buhari: 612,371

Atiku’s claims:

Kogi
Atiku: 504,308
Buhari: 431,479

Gombe
Atiku: 684,077
Buhari: 115,225

Kaduna
Atiku : 961,143
Buhari: 469,002

Niger
Atiku: 576,308
Buhari: 504,218

In his petition, Atiku also stated other reasons why he believes he should either be declared the winner of the election, or the election be cancelled.
