Atiku heads to court as INEC declares Buhari winner of 2019 presidential election

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has rejected the election results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which declared Muhammadu Buhari winner.

Okay Nigeria had earlier reported that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared President Muhammadu Buhari winner of Saturday’s presidential election.

However, the former president reacting to the outcome said he will be challenging the election in court.

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.”
