The official competitor of the People groups Progressive alliance (PDP) in the last political decision, Atiku Abubakar, has passionately dismissed the decision of the Official Political race Appeal Council (PEPT).
Everyday POST reviews that PEPT on Wednesday struck out the appeal documented by Atiku and his Work Party (LP) partner, Peter Obi, testing the triumph of President Bola Tinubu of the All Reformists Congress (APC) in the February 25 political race.
The council held that the petitions by the applicants and their gatherings needed merit, maintaining the appointment of Tinubu.
The judgment was conveyed by the executive of the council, Equity Haruna Tsammani, helped by different individuals from the board, specifically judges Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf, Stephen Adah, Moses Ugo, and Abba Mohammed.
Responding, Atiku, in a question and answer session in Abuja on Thursday, dismissed the decision, saying the fight to upswing Tinubu’s triumph proceeds.
The previous VP, who called himself a contender, said he had educated his legitimate group to document an allure at the High Court.
He said: “I’m here today to give my authority response to the judgment conveyed yesterday by the Official Political decision Appeal Court on the 2023 official races.
“As you definitely know, I moved toward the court following the announcement by the INEC that the APC and its applicant are the champs of the February 25 races. My choice to go to court was moored in my conviction that the court is the safe-haven of equity.
“Without a doubt, I’m no more odd to fights in court. I can say that I have a fair thought of how the court framework functions. All through my profession as a legislator, I have been a warrior, and I will keep on battling.
“Our point of directing sound decisions in the nation was undermined by INEC through the manner in which it dealt with the official political race.
“I’m worried about the possibility that that the judgment of the PEPT yesterday neglected to reestablish trust in our fantasy of free and fair decisions without human control.
“I’m here to let you know that however the judgment of the court yesterday is regarded, it is a judgment that I wouldn’t acknowledge.
“I won’t acknowledge it since I accept it is absent any and all significant equity. I have asked my attorneys to unavoidably enact the surefire right to pursue in the higher court.”
