“We will NOT concede defeat, Atiku won’t call Buhari to concede” PDP declares
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has again pointed that Atiku Abubakar will not concede the presidential election to President Muhammadu Buhari as they have assembled a team of lawyers to challenge the result in court.
President Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was declared as the winner of the election with the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
PDP sources hint that Kanu Agabi, former attorney-general of the federation, will be leading the team of lawyers to challenge the result at the presidential election petitions tribunal of the federal court of appeal, Abuja.
Other members of the legal team as reported by TheCable, are Joe Gadzama, who has always served as a lawyer to the party, and Chris Uche, among other senior advocates of Nigeria.
“We are currently collating evidence to challenge the results being announced by INEC. We have been asking them to give us the data of of the card readers used in Borno, Yobe and Nasarawa states but they have so far refused. This is daylight robbery,” a PDP executive told TheCable.
“I can also tell you that Atiku will not make any call to Buhari to concede the election.”
The legal team was inaugurated by Bukola Saraki, the director-general of the PDP presidential campaign, on Tuesday evening at the Legacy House, Abuja.
