The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Nigerians to ignore the news in circulation claiming that the country’s Supreme Court has struck out the election petition of its presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, former Governor Peter Obi.
The Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, have filed their final written addresses in which they explained how they were allegedly robbed of victory in the February 23, 2019 presidential election through wrongful computation in 11 states.
The PDP said it is despicable that the Buhari Presidency and the APC have not yet realized that Nigerians are aware that since their defence fell apart at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, they have become nervous and desperate to invent any means to frame and drag down Atiku Abubakar; a plot that has already failed.
In what might appear a tyrannical plot to rope in Atiku Abubakar and finally silence the opposition parties after a massive militarily backed election rigging, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused him of being behind the recent #RevolutionNow protest to express discontent against the policies of the Buhari administration.
In a dramatic turn of event on Thursday, President Muhammadu Buhari abruptly terminated his defense in the petition filed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his party seeking to upturn the declaration of Buhari as winner of the February 23 presidential election.
