PDP vs APC: Atiku Inaugurates Legal Team Against Buhari

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday inaugurated his legal team to challenge the result of the 23 February presidential election.

The Wazirin Adamawa vowed that he would use every legal means to secured victory.

A statement made available to journalists and signed by his spokesman, Paul Ibe, said the team is headed by Dr Livy Uzoukwu, SAN.

“I have just inaugurated my legal team and charged them with the responsibility of ensuring that our stolen mandate is retrieved”, Atiku was quoted as saying.
“I am encouraged by the presence of fearless men and women of the Bench.

“The judiciary which had in the past discharged itself ably is once again being called upon to deliver judgement on this matter that will be untainted by lucre and un-cowed by the threat of immoral power”.

Atiku assured Nigerians that sooner than later, the noble dispensers of justice will give a judgement that will represent a historic denunciation of electoral fraud and mandate bandit.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had on Wednesday, 27 February declared Muhammadu Buhari as winner of the election.

However, Atiku on Thursday, 28 February rejected the result citing several malpractices.

He condemned “the use of the military to perfect voters’ intimidation and suppression in PDP strongholds, connivance of INEC officials, security agents and the ruling party to manufacture bogus figures and outright falsification of the returns from the polling units.”

It would be recalled that Thursday night, the PDP presidential candidate met with members of the National Peace Committee prompting concerns in some quarters that he may have been prevailed upon not to proceed with the challenge.
