The candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has reiterated that he won the 2023 presidential election with 8.7 million votes.

Daily Report Nigeria reports that Obi made the claim in an appeal filed before the Supreme Court, demanding to annul the election of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.

Obi and the LP are seeking the apex court to set aside the September 6 judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court, which upheld the victory of Tinubu ans the APC in the February 25 presidential election.

In a 51-ground appeal filed by his legal team on Tuesday, Obi argued that the tribunal dismissed his petition in error.

Obi and his party had challenged the outcome of the election on the grounds of alleged overvoting and non-compliance with the Electoral Act.

The legal team also argued that the tribunal erred in refusing to rely on the evidence of 18,088 blurred polling unit results uploaded by INEC staff to its public viewing portal.

According to the appeal, the blurred results formed part of the certified copies issued to them by INEC and should have been considered by the PEPC.

The appeal partly read, “Take notice that the Appellants being dissatisfied with the decisions in PETITION NO: CA/PEPC/03/2023 MR. PETER GREGORY OBI & ANOR. v. INDEPENDENT NATIONAL ELECTORAL COMMISSION & ORS. (consolidated with Election Petition Nos: CA/PEPC/04/2023 and CA/PEPC/05/2023), contained in pages 3-327 of the Judgment of the Court of Appeal sitting as the Presidential Election Petition Court, Holden at Abuja, Coram: H. S. Tsammani, Stephen Jonah Adah, Misitura Omodere Bolaji-Yusuff, Boloukuroma Moses Ugo and Abba Bello Mohammed, JJ.C.A. (“the Court below”) delivered on the 6th day of September 2023, and more particularly stated in paragraph 2 of this Notice of Appeal, do hereby appeal to the Supreme Court on the Grounds set out in Paragraph 3 and will at the hearing of the appeal seek the Reliefs sought in paragraph 4 herein.”
