Nigeria’s opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar promises to reclaim mandate through the law courts.
The presidential candidate of Nigeria’s main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Wednesday expressed assurances that he would reclaim his victory.
Though Atiku earlier said he is heading to the court to adjudicate in the alleged manipulation of the electoral process by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), he told journalists during a press briefing held at the Atiku Abubakar Auditorium, Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja that he is consulting with Nigerians on the next line of action.
Describing the Saturday presidential election in the political history of Nigeria in the last three decades, Atiku said it was an “electoral fraud”.
Expressing optimism that the election is not capable of producing a government because it does not reflect the wishes and aspirations of Nigerian voters, he also pleaded with the foreign investors not to lose confidence in the country.
