At a news conference in Abuja yesterday, National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, said: “You cannot possibly deny anyone the right to dispute the outcome of an election, however free and fair, but like myself, when I believed I was cheated out, I went to court and I mobilized my evidences. ‘’So, we hope and we are looking forward to meeting Atiku Abubakar in court. We might also choose to also cross-petition because there were many areas we can dispute.”
Also, the Presidency yesterday said that it is not perturbed by the decision of candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to challenge the outcome of the February 23 Presidential election in court.
It also appealed to the supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari not to incite the opposition party to anger as they celebrate his victory in the election.
President Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, was in the early hours of Wednesday declared winner of the presidential election by chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, who was also the Returning Officer for the presidential poll.
