Atiku employs 19 SANs to challenge Tinubu’s victory

THE presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has put together a legal team of 19 Senior Advocates of Nigeria to challenge the outcome of the February 25 election.

Atiku briefed them today at his campaign Headquarters in Abuja, asking them to “establish the claim of illegality in the election and reclaim the mandate of the Nigerian people.”

The team is headed by a seasoned litigation and commercial lawyer, JK Gadzama.

He further declared that it is crucial for them to go through this process not just for himself and PDP, but also to reinforce constitutional democracy and safeguard it for future generations.

The list of SANs includes Chief Chris Uche, Paul Usoro, Tayo Jegede, Ken Mozia, Chief Mike Ozekhome, Mahmood Magaji, Joe Abraham, Chukwuma Umeh, Garba Tetengi and Chief Emeka Etiaba – as well as Chief Goddy Uche, Professor Maxwell Gidado; PDP’s National Legal Adviser A.K. Ajibade; O.M. Atoyebi; Nella Rabana; Paul Ogbole; Nuremi Jimoh and Abdul Ibrahim.

Recall that Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, have refused to concede defeat in the February 25 presidential election, vowing to recover their mandate in court.

The two candidates rebuffed the gesture of conciliation made by the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, who in his acceptance speech after he was declared the winner of the poll on Wednesday, asked them to support him in the task of building the nation.

The Independent National Electoral Commission declared Tinubu as the President-elect after the 70-year-old polled 8,794,726 votes to defeat his closest rivals, Atiku and Obi who scored 6,984,520 and 6,101, votes, respectively.

    SECOND ELEVEN TEAM FOR A DISGRUNTLED LIP SERVICE DEMOCRACY PLAYER SECOND PLACER. FOR FAILURE AND FOR ANOTHER EXERCISE IN FUTILITY. MORIBUND EXACTLY.

    Another mediocrity chase which still took a cue from the winner who already constituted the legal team that would defend his victory at the presidential polls.

    WHAT HYPOCRISY IS Atiku PRACTISING BOTH IN THUGGERY LAWLESSNESS AND GARAGE MENTALITY. HE ONCE SAID HE WOULD GO TO COURT, LATER WENT TO THE STREET WHERE HE PRESENTED TO THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD THE TYPE OF UNCIVILIZED SORE SOUR PERSON IS MADE OF. NOW RETURNING TO THE COURT AFTER THE SHOW OF SHAME WITNESSED BY ALL AND SAUNDRY.

    The dual character goon Waziri was only able to let the world into his child brain composure with the mind of an UNGROWN.

    Atiku AND HIS GANG OF BANDITS KNEW THEY HAD NO CASE, THEREFORE RESORTED TO ILLEGALITY ROUGHNESS AND DIPLAYS OF MANNERLESS WITH ACTS THAT SUGGESTS MENTALITY OF LITTLE PERONALITY.

    Anyway, Asiwaju who is the president elect once again beat them to it and made it another first like he usually does.

    THESE HATEFUL HOPELESS LOSER DUNCES ARE STILL GOING TO BE WASTING THEIR TIME OVER NOTHING THAT LEADS THEM NOWHERE.
