BREAKING: ATIKU OFFICIALLY REJECTS OUTCOME OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, HEADS TO COURT



Former president of Nigeria and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  Atiku Abubakar, has officially rejected the outcome of the just concluded Presidential Election held on the 23rd February, and has decided to head to court.

He said the election was not free, fair and that it was full of many irregularities.


The former Vice President, therefore, said that he would challenge the outcome in court.

Atiku, in a statement he personally signed early Wednesday morning, said if he had lost in a free and fair election, he would hav e called the winner, President Muhammadu Buhari within seconds of his being aware of the outcome of the exercise.


He said,


“if I had lost in a free and fair election, I would have called the victor within seconds of my being aware of his victory to offer not just my congratulations, but my services to help unite Nigeria by being a bridge between the North and the South.


However, in my democratic struggles for the past three decades, I have never seen our democracy so debased as it was on Saturday, February 23, 2019. 2007 was a challenge, but President Yar’Adua was remorseful. In 2019, it is sad to see those who trampled on democracy thumping their noses down on the Nigerian people. “Consequently, I hereby reject the result of the February 23, 2019 sham election and will be challenging it in court.”
