Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president on February 25, 2023, says he will remain in politics despite the Supreme Court’s October 26, 2023 ruling upholding President Bola Tinubu’s election victory.
“As for me and my group, this stage of the project is finished. At a press conference on Monday in Abuja, the capital of the country, the former vice president stated, “But I am not going to go away; if you think I am going to go away, forget about it.”
“I will fight to strengthen our democracy with other Nigerians for as long as I have breath.” I’ll keep pushing for the nation to undergo political and economic restructuring,” he added.
For nearly thirty years, Atiku, a former vice president from 1999 to 2007, has attempted to become the president of Nigeria.
Despite his futile attempts, the PDP mainstay declared that he would not “go away.”
Atiku maintained that Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress , APC, candidate at the time, lacked the necessary qualifications to run in the presidential election scheduled for February 2023.
He claimed that the Independent National Electoral Commission , INEC, and the Supreme Court encouraged perjury, identity theft, impersonation, certificate forgery, and illegality.
Atiku claimed that democracy is on life support when people stop believing in the electoral process.
Despite being final, he said, the ruling of the supreme court leaves a lot to be desired.
