The Petition Tribunal (PEPT) has dismissed a petition challenging the victory of  Muhammadu and the All Progressives (APC) in the presidential election.

The Coalition for Change (C4C) and its presidential candidate, Geff Chizee Ojinika, had filed the petition marked: CA/PEPTL/003/, in which they complained of unlawful exclusion or misrepresentation and sought the cancellation of the election and the conduct of a fresh presidential election.

The petitioners had complained that the Independent National Electoral Commission () printed CC and against its actual acronym of C4C, a development, they claimed worked to their disadvantage.
