The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party , Atiku Abubakar , has rejected the outcome of the February 23 presidential election.
He said the election was not free , fair and that it was full of many irregularities .
The former Vice President, therefore, said that he would challenge the outcome in court .
Atiku , in a statement he personally signed early Wednesday morning , said if he had lost in a free and fair election, he would have called the winner , President Muhammadu Buhari within seconds of his being aware of the outcome of the exercise .
He said , “ if I had lost in a free and fair election, I would have called the victor within seconds of my being aware of his victory to offer not just my congratulations , but my services to help unite Nigeria by being a bridge between the North and the South .
“ However, in my democratic struggles for the past three decades , I have never seen our democracy so debased as it was on Saturday , February 23 , 2019 . 2007 was a challenge, but President Yar’ Adua was remorseful . In 2019 , it is sad to see those who trampled on democracy thumping their noses down on the Nigerian people .
“ Consequently, I hereby reject the result of the February 23 , 2019 sham election and will be challenging it in court . ”
