Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday, held a World Press Conference on the outcome of the February 23rd, presidential election.
Atiku reiterated that he rejects the result and he’s “conferring with not just my party, but also with the Nigerian people, on next steps, which will be revealed to the public shortly.”
Let me say that I am not speaking as a member of the PDP. I am speaking as a Nigerian when I say that the electoral fraud perpetrated by the Muhammadu Buhari administration this past Saturday cannot produce a government, for the simple reason that it does not reflect the will of the Nigerian people.
It is for this reason that I, Atiku Abubakar, reject the results declared by INEC declaring Muhammadu Buhari as duly returned by the majority of lawful votes.
