Supreme Court Verdict: ‘I Am Not Going Away’- Atiku

Supreme Court Verdict: ‘I Am Not Going Away’- Atiku
  • PublishedOctober 30, 2023

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last gubernatorial election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Monday, said he will not leave the political arena despite the Supreme Court verdict of October 26, 2023, that affirmed the electoral victory of President Bola Tinubu.

The former vice president made this known at a press briefing on Monday in Abuja.

He said, “As for me and my party, this phase of work is done. However, I am not going to go away, if you think I am going to go away, forget about it.

“For as long as I breathe, I will continue to struggle with other Nigerians to deepen our democracy. I will continue to work for the return of political and economic restructuring that the country needs.”

Atiku insisted that President Tinubu was not qualified to contest the February 2023 presidential poll, accusing the Supreme Court and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of supporting illegality, identity theft, impersonation, forgery of certificates and perjury.

Atiku said when people lose confidence in the electoral process, democracy is on life support.

He said though the apex court’s judgment was final, it leaves much to be desired.
