The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has rested the argument of whether winning 25% in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) was necessary in becoming president of Nigeria.

The Justice Tsammani-led panel, said the voters in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja are equal to every other voters in the states in Nigeria, hence, Abuja has no special status.

Recall that the Labour Party (LP) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidates submitted that winning 25% of the FCT votes, in addition to meeting other requirements, was a necessary requirement of being declared winner in a presidential election.

The PEPC had earlier quashed the case of massive rigging alleged by Obi in favour of Tinubu.
