|Tribunal: APC Mocks Atiku, PDP; Hails Buhari, Judges by IgbereBlog: 9:12am On Sep 12|
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has mocked Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over their ‘poor outing’ at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, Igbere TV reports.
Igbere TV had reported that the Tribunal, Wednesday, upheld Buhari’s re-election, striking out all petitions brought against him by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
In a statement obtained by Igbere TV on Wednesday, the APC lauded the Tribunal’s verdict, while commending the judges for not falling for what it described as the opposition PDP threats.
The statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the legal affirmation of President Buhari’s election was a victory for rule of law and decency.
He described the petition of the PDP and Atiku as ‘a complete waste of time’, stating that ‘in their puerile efforts, they insisted on taking the country on a circus and wild goose chase.’
Issa-Onilu, who congratulated Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, all party members and ‘well-meaning’ Nigerians on what he called ‘landmark judgement’, also hailed the judiciary for refusing to succumb to the opposition party’s ‘subterfuge’.
He said the APC was not perturbed over the PDP and Atiku’s petition which he said would ‘go down in Nigeria’s history as the most frivolous’ in the history of Election Petition.
“We note the painstaking efforts and thoroughness of the Justices of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in arriving at their decision. The judgement, no doubt, would go down in the annals of our nation as the longest and detailed, spanning almost 10 hours.
“The judgement by the five-member validates the decision of most Nigerians to do away with the past as expressed in their overwhelming votes in the 2019 elections.
“The PDP and Atiku’s petition was largely hinged on the educational qualification of President Muhammadu Buhari and tales of an Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) server and allegations of electronic transmission of election results. This was rightly dismissed by the tribunal for lacking in merit….
“Going forward, APC’s victory at the presidential polls and the election tribunal represents our collective desire as a people to remain focus on the progressive growth and development of our country’s economy, fight against corruption, and providing security.
“Consequently, we have taken a bold step by rescuing our nation from the satanic era of PDP, when our collective interests were being corruptly traded among a few pillagers.”
