The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, during its session in Abuja on Wednesday, declared that the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), does not hold a higher status than other states in the country.
Justice Haruna Tsammani, who leads the five-member panel, made this declaration. He stated that Section 134 (1) and (2) of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended) specifies that in a presidential election involving two or more candidates, a presidential candidate must secure a majority of the votes cast and at least 25% support in two-thirds of the 36 States and the FCT to meet the constitutional requirement for being declared as the duly elected President of Nigeria.
