SGF Says No Harm In Atiku Heading To The Court

Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), says there is nothing to worry about over the threats by Atiku Abubakar to head to the tribunal over the results of Saturday’s presidential election.

He added that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress are not jittery about Atiku’s plans.

Naija News recalls on Wednesday, INEC declared Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the polls after he polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat Atiku of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who had 11,262,978 votes.

Atiku, however, rejected the outcome of the election, saying it didn’t reflect the choice of the people and promised to seek redress in court.

However, SGF Mustapha, who is also from Adamawa state like Atiku said there is nothing to worry about.

“We are not jittery at all because the process was open and transparent. It was a credible election and we will continue to savour the victory. In the process too, we will extend the hand of friendship for the purpose of nation building and reconciliation.”

“Our electoral act and the constitution have both provided a window for whoever is dissatisfied with the process of election to seek redress. That is the path and we will encourage them to go along that path.”
