Tinubu: Atiku Reacts To Supreme Court’s Ruling

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has insisted that his legal team will prove that the election was fraudulent.

Atiku was reacting to the Friday Supreme Court ruling that dismissed the suit seeking the disqualification of President-elect Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima – Vice-President-elect over alleged double nomination of the latter during the 2023 polls.

Recall that a five-member panel of the apex court held that the Peoples Democratic Party lacked the locus standi to institute the suit. The panel said the PDP is not a member of the APC.

However, reacting to the ruling, Atiku reiterated that his legal team will stop at nothing to prove that the 2023 presidential election was fraudulent.

He made this known through his official Twitter account.

He said, “The Supreme Court’s dismissal of the case of the @OfficialPDPNig is not a setback to my quest for justice. Our legal team is primed to robustly prove that the election of February 25 was fraudulent, did not comply with the constitutional requirements and the electoral guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission, @inecnigeria, and that the announced winner was not even qualified to contest the poll.

“The battle for democracy and the enthronement of a new order to spur growth and development in Nigeria is one to which I have committed my all and for which I am not ready to walk away at this point when our nation is at crossroads. We know that sooner than later, our esteemed Justices will make the pronouncement that will serve as a befitting requiem for mandate bandits.

“I urge my supporters to exercise patience and conduct themselves peaceably as we diligently conduct our litigation at the Presidential Election Tribunal Court.
