…..The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, said the dismissal of his party’s suit at the Supreme Court is not a setback for his quest for justice.

,,,,Atiku stated this in a statement via his verified Twitter handle on Friday.

The former Vice President said, “The Supreme Court’s dismissal of the case of the @OfficialPDPNig is not a setback to my quest for justice.

“Our legal team are primed to robustly prove that the election of February 25 was fraudulent, did not comply with the constitutional requirements and the electoral guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission, @inecnigeria, and that the announced winner was not even qualified to contest the poll.

“The battle for democracy and the enthronement of a new order to spur growth and development in Nigeria is one to which I have committed my all and for which I am not ready to walk away at this point when our nation is at crossroads. We know that sooner than later, our esteemed Justices will make the pronouncement that will serve as a befitting requiem for mandate bandits,” he said.

Atiku, however, urged his supporters to exercise patience and>>>conduct themselves peaceably as they conduct the litigation at the Presidential Election Tribunal Court.

Recall that the Supreme Court, earlier today (Friday), affirmed the eligibility of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to contest the presidential election that held on February 25.

The apex court, in a unanimous decision by a five-member panel, held that an appeal the opposition>>>Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, filed to challenge the legality of Tinubu’s candidacy, lacked merit.

>>PDP had in the appeal marked: SC/CV/501/2023, sought Tinubu’s disqualification on the premise that the Vice President-elect, Senator Kashim Shettima, allowed himself to>>>>be nominated for more than one constituency, ahead of the 2023 general elections.

It told the court that Shettima was nominated twice, both for the Borno Central Senatorial seat and for the Vice Presidential position.
