Challenging Tinubu’s Election Not For Personal Interest — Atiku


By Nurat Uthman

Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday affirmed that he is not challenging the outcome of the 2023 presidential election for personal reasons.

In a statement he issued to refute a press release giving legitimacy to “the widely rigged” presidential election of February 25, he said he would never validate an illegitimate outcome of a flawed process.

He denied that the so-called press release emanated from him or my office, noting that “it should be treated with repudiation, untrue, and deliberately contrived by those who illegally appropriated the mandate of the Nigerian people.”

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stated: “For the avoidance of any doubt, I wish to state categorically that my lawyers still have my unflinching mandate to challenge the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.

“I join other lovers of democracy in Nigeria and friends of our great country in the outright rejection of the pre-determined outcome of the February 25 election.

“I shall continue to challenge the legality of that election, alongside my party, the Peoples Democratic Party.

“The decision to challenge the sham election of February 25, the worst election in our democratic history, is not predicated on my personal interest but for the interest of Nigeria and its people. It is aimed at deepening democracy and ensuring that we do not confer legitimacy on an outcome of illegitimacy.

“My commitment to the democratic struggle in Nigeria is beyond an election season.”
