ELECTION PETITION: Atiku confident of getting justice at Supreme Court



Controversy trails M’ Belt Forum’s purported endorsement of Atiku

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar on Friday said he was sure he would get judgement at the Supreme Court against President Muhammadu Buhari, in his appeal challenging the judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

Atiku, who was the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stated this on his Twitter handle @atiku, calling on his supporters not to underestimate the effect of their belief that justice will be done.

It would be recalled that Atiku had sued Buhari, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the aftermath of Buhari’s declaration as the winner of the presidential election.

He is seeking to upturn the victory and have the court declare that he (Atiku) was the winner.

Atiku tweeted: “I note the immense outpouring of goodwill from ordinary Nigerians in every nook and cranny of Nigeria and from all regions, religions and relationships.

“Once again I thank you all for your support.

“I also thank the governors elected on the platform of my party, the Peoples Democratic Party, as well as the National Executive Committee, for their unanimous and unambiguous support for the judicial phase of this struggle, especially after it was announced that we would go on to appeal.

“I urge all Nigerians to continue their support for this recourse to constitutional order via the courts.

“Even if there is little or nothing you can do to ensure that justice is done in Nigeria, just believe that it will happen.

“Let us never underestimate the effect of our belief.

“Finally, I say to all concerned, that we will all die and give account of our lives to our Creator.

“Thank you and may God bless Nigeria.”
