The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will not concede Saturday’s Presidential election, to President Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The party said that it has started collating evidence to challenge the results that was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
According to PDP sources, Kanu Agabi, former Attorney-General of the Federation, is leading a team of Lawyers that will challenge the results, at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
We are currently collating evidence to challenge the results being announced by INEC. We have been asking them to give us the data of the card readers used in Borno, Yobe, and Nasarawa States, but they have so far refused. This is daylight robbery”, a PDP source said.
“I can also tell you that Atiku will not make any call to Buhari to concede the election.”
The Legal team was inaugurated by Bukola Saraki, the Director-General of the PDP Presidential Campaign, at the Legacy House, Abuja.
Atiku could not attend meeting, as he was observing “bed rest”, according to the source in the know.
Recall, that the Legal team had summoned an emergency meeting to review complaints about the Presidential election, and to decide on the way forward.
