The Supreme Court endorsed the rulings of the Court of Appeal and the Federal High Court in Abuja, which had previously dismissed the People’s Democratic Party, PDP’s appeal.
Chronicle NG reports that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate, responded to the Supreme Court decision via his official Twitter account in this manner.
“The Supreme Court’s dismissal of the case of the PDP’s is not a setback to my quest for justice.”
“Our legal team are primed to robustly prove that the election of February 25 was fraudulent, did not comply with the constitutional requirements and the electoral guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission, and that the announced winner was not even qualified to contest the poll.”
“The battle for democracy and the enthronement of a new order to spur growth and development in Nigeria is one to which I have committed my all and for which I am not ready to walk away at this point when our nation is at crossroads. We know that sooner than later, our esteemed Justices will make the pronouncement that will serve as a befitting requiem for mandate bandits.”
“I urge my supporters to exercise patience and conduct themselves peaceably as we diligently conduct our litigation at the Presidential Election Tribunal Court.”
