Atiku inaugurates legal team to challenge 2019 presidential election result

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has inaugurated to challenge the 2019 presidential election result which was held on 23rd February.

Okay Nigeria had reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Muhammadu Buhari as winner of the 2019 presidential election.

However, Atiku rejected the outcome of the election and vowed to challenge the result in court.

Okay Nigeria understands that the team will be headed by Dr Livy Uzoukwu, SAN.

Atiku during the inauguration said, “I have just inaugurated my legal team and charged them with the responsibility of ensuring that our stolen mandate is retrieved”, Atiku said in a statement by his media aide, Paul Ibe.

“I am encouraged by the presence of fearless men and women of the Bench. The judiciary which had in the past discharged itself ably is once again being called upon to deliver judgement on this matter that will be untainted by lucre and uncowed by the threat of immoral power.”
