The PDP presidential candidate Alhaji Abubakar Atiku who has vowed to challenge the election result declared by INEC has just inaugurated his legal team to restore the stolen mandate.
The legal team would be led by Dr Livy Uzoukwu (SAN). Atiku said, “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 uncowed by the threat of immoral power”. He vowed to use all available legitimate means to challenge the result of the election.
He had also accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of conniving with INEC officials and security agents to fabricate “bogus figures and outright falsification of the returns from the polling units”.
Atiku media adviser, Paul Ibe said, “In a desperate move to have Atiku Abubakar concede and congratulate General Muhammadu Buhari, officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at about 8.30am today (Saturday) invaded the Maitama residence of Babalele”.
He added, “They were, however, not given access into the house until his lawyers arrived.
“As a law-abiding citizen, Atiku Abubakar recognises the constitutional role of the EFCC and indeed any other agency of the government to carry out investigations, but will not be cowed by any attempt to blackmail him into mortgaging his mandate”.
