BREAKING: Atiku Rejects Election Results, Heads To Court

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party , Atiku Abubakar, has rejected the outcome of the February 23 presidential election .

He said the election was not free , fair and that it was full of many irregularities.

The former Vice President , therefore , said that he would challenge the outcome in court .

Atiku , in a statement he personally signed early Wednesday morning , said if he had lost in a free and fair election , he would have called the winner, President Muhammadu Buhari within seconds of his being aware of the outcome of the exercise .

He said , “ if I had lost in a free and fair election , I would have called the victor within seconds of my being aware of his victory to offer not just my congratulations , but my services to help unite Nigeria by being a bridge between the North and the South .

“ However , in my democratic struggles for the past three decades , I have never seen our democracy so debased as it was on Saturday , February 23 , 2019 . 2007 was a challenge , but President Yar ’ Adua was remorseful . In 2019 , it is sad to see those who trampled on democracy thumping their noses down on the Nigerian people .

“ Consequently , I hereby reject the result of the February 23 , 2019 sham election and will be challenging it in court . ”
