The Presidential candidate of thePeoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party in the 2019 Presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has said that he has enough evidence to sack President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
The Presidential election took place on February 23 this year and was conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
INEC declared President Buhari, who contested the election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the February 23rd Presidential election.
Apparently displeased with the results declared by INEC, Atiku, who claimed to have won the election, approached the tribunal to overturn the announcement by INEC.
Speaking on the possibility of Atiku securing victory at the tribunal, one of the senior lawyers in Atiku’s legal team, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), said it was the expectation of his client “that the judiciary, as the last hope of the common man, will be dauntless in addressing the substance of the petition by the peoples’ candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the collective quest to retrieve a stolen mandate through the legal process.”
A report monitored on The Sun Newspaper by mNaija.com, quoted Ozekhome to have said that: “We have made a solid case before the panel. Our client, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has also presented his case supported by credible evidence.
“We had presented incontrovertible evidence to show that our presidential mandate was stolen. Every Nigerian now looks on to the judicial officers for justice.
“Nigerians are waiting and hoping that the judiciary will have the courage to do justice in the presidential election petition,” Atiku’s representative at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal said.
