THE FULL STATEMENT

WE DO NOT SEEK TO STOP ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR FROM GOING TO COURT

Our consideration has been drawn to some information merchandise and posts on social media reporting that we wrote a letter to some worldwide our bodies to prevail on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to not proceed to court to problem the results of the 2019 Presidential Election.

In reality, it’s the resort to court that’s the solely democratic method to ventilate his perceived grievance and any try to limit or discourage the train of such proper could be an invite to anarchy.

In addition, we’re very anxious to fulfill Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in court with a view to present the world in a conclusive method the free and truthful nature of the great defeat of Atiku on the polls.

Unfortunately for them, worldwide, continental and sub-regional observers (who could be seen as impartial by all requirements) ALL declared the election to be free, truthful and credible. No ego-massaging narrative can change that.

We subsequently completely disassociate ourselves from the letter purportedly written by considered one of, maybe, many assist teams of President Muhammadu Buhari. They could have a proper to their opinion, however it doesn’t characterize our official place.
