The announcement by Atiku Abubakar and the PDP to call not more than 100 witnesses to testify in their case before the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) is a significant move in their bid to challenge the outcome of the 2023 presidential election. The decision suggests that they are committed to presenting a strong case and are focused on calling only those witnesses who are most relevant to their case. It also shows that they are aware of the limitations of calling too many witnesses, which can lead to confusion and dilute the strength of their case. This move by Atiku and the PDP is likely to be closely watched by political analysts and the public, as it could have a significant impact on the outcome of the case.
