“We are not jittery at all” SGF as Atiku heads to court
Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boos Mustapha, says President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress are not scared about Atiku Abubakar’s plans to challenge the result of Saturday’s presidential election.
APC had fielded Buhari, as the candidate of the party during the elections where he polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat Atiku, the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who got 11,262,978 votes.
At a world press conference held in Abuja yesterday, Atiku had formally rejected the outcome of the election, describing it as “the worst in Nigeria’s history” and the worst since his 30-year political experience.
However, Mustapha said there is nothing to worry about.
“We are not jittery at all because the process was open and transparent. It was a credible election and we will continue to savour the victory. In the process too, we will extend the hand of friendship for the purpose of nation building and reconciliation,” Boss, opined.
“Our electoral act and the constitution have both provided a window for whoever is dissatisfied with the process of election to seek redress. That is the path and we will encourage them to go along that path.”
