Atiku Reacts After Supreme Court Dismissed PDP's Suit Against Shettima's Double Nomination

Atiku Abubakar, who was the presidential election of the Peoples Democratic Party, has reacted after the Supreme Court dismissed the party's suit against APC that demanded the disqualification of Shettima's victory as the Vice president elect.

The Supreme Court had on Friday dismissed the suit seeking the disqualification of Kashim Shettima as the vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress for double nomination.

Reacting to this, Atiku took to his twitter handle and wrote, "The Supreme Court's dismissal of the case of the PDP is not a setback to my quest for justice. Our legal team are primed to robustly prove that the election of February 25 was fraudulent, did not comply with the constitutional requirements and the electoral guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC and that the announced winner was not even qualified to contest the poll".

"The battle for democracy and the enthronement of a new order to spur growth and development in Nigeria is one to which I have committed my all and for which I am not ready to walk away at this point when our nation is at crossroads. We know that sooner than later, our esteemed Justices will make the pronouncement that will serve as a befitting requiem for mandate bandits".

"I urge my supporters to exercise patience and conduct themselves peaceably as we diligently conduct our litigation at the Presidential Election Tribunal Court".
