Buhari and Atiku

The 2019 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has assured Nigerians that he would accept the verdict of the Presidential Election Tribunal on his petition challenging the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as winner of the election.

He gave the assurance while stating that he would not allow Nigeria to experience crisis or spilling of innocent blood
in a bid to get justice.

Speaking through the spokesperson of his campaign organisation, Segun Sowunmi, the former Vice President said he was more interested in institutional reforms that would enhance national development.

Addressing journalists yesterday in Abuja, Showunmi urged judicial officers of the tribunal to do what was expected of them by delivering judgement in line with their professional calling.

He said: “We hope and pray that the cankerworm, nepotism, corruption and lack of integrity that has eaten deep into the fabrics of this society would be caught.

“But it’s up to the courts to demonstrate that they are immune. And I think this election tribunal will do its work. People want to know how it will go, and of course, we don’t have a choice, we will accept the verdict of history, we will accept the verdict of the court.

“However, there is no way you can edge it, Atiku is already the winner of the 2019 presidential election in the minds of the people.

“For he is the leader of opposition now, Atiku is not going to be silenced with whatever the outcome will be.”
