The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) has dismissed an application by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, accusing Vice President Yemi Osinbajo of inducing voters with the TraderMoni scheme in favour of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The PDP had accused the ruling APC of vote-buying, a few weeks to the conduct of the presidential election when Osinbajo started sharing N10,000 to the market women.
However, in its ruling on Wednesday, the court dismissed the application in favour of President Buhari.
The tribunal held that it did not have jurisdiction over the matter. It also noted that Osinbajo was not a party in the suit.
