Atiku vs Buhari: Peter Obi reacts to tribunal ruling

Peter Obi, vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the February 23, 2019 presidential election, has opined that Atiku Abubakar, the party’s flagbearer, move to challenge the result in court is a civilised manner to seek redress and grow the nation’s democracy.

He said that it would have been suicidal if the PDP and Atiku had failed to approach the court to seek redress on the outcome of the election.

He further praised Atiku for always supporting democracy and the PDP for successfully nurturing it for 16 years and conducting one of the most credible elections it lost and seamlessly handed over.

The former Anambra governor said, “that it would have been suicidal to ignore the monumental fraud that characterized the February 23 Presidential election and let it go unchallenged.

“By challenging the fraud we have decided to deepen democracy the civilised way as a party and a people that believe in the rule of law.”

Obi called on all Democrats to remain prayerful and remain focused knowing that victory is sure to come the way of those who seek justice and fairness.
