Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has again vowed to challenge the results of the presidential election in court.
President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) emerged winner of the election.
In a world press conference on Wednesday at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja, Atiku said the outcome of the election did not reflect the will of the people, vowing to reclaim his “stolen mandate” in court.
Atiku said, “That did not happen on Saturday, February 23, 2019. On Election Day, we saw the implementation of grand theft of the people’s will.
“In Akwa Ibom, for instance, the results showed a statistical impossibility of a 62 per cent drop in voter numbers from the 2015 elections, even where voter registration and PVC collection rates were much higher than in 2015. This is where voter suppression took place.
“Our party made these observations and complaints before the elections that there were plans to implement voter suppression on PDP or opposition strongholds and voter increase in APC strongholds.”
