President Muhammadu Buhari has finally spoken on the decision of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar to challenge the outcome of the February presidential election results in court.
Naija News reports that President Buhari through the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) says Abubakar Atiku’s suit challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari would fail because it lacks merit.
The BMO made this known in a statement signed by its chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke on Monday in Abuja.
The statement stressed that the suit by the opposition was a waste of time.
The group re-emphasised that Atiku knew that he had no chance of victory even before the elections and is only attempting this suit to hoodwink Nigerians and ultimately waste the time of the country’s judiciary.
“Atiku Abubakar has yet to wake up from his hallucination that he can steal a chance to defeat Buhari in an election.
“If the Presidential elections were to hold ten times, Atiku will lose ten times to Buhari.
“Atiku knew it, even before the elections were held, that he never stood a chance at beating Buhari at the poll,’’ the group said.
BMO noted that Atiku’s loss at the 2019 Presidential Poll was evidence of Nigerians rejecting the former Vice President.
“The signs were very clear before the elections, during the elections, and with the eventual victory of Buhari been the popular appeal across the country.
“Atiku’s rejection by Nigerians started with his own household,’’ he said.
