NAN reports that Atiku and the PDP approached the PEPC challenging the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the Feb. 25 presidential election.

Atiku urged the court to declare him the winner of the election or, in the alternative, to cancel the election and order a fresh election due to alleged irregularities that marred the poll in thousands of polling units.
