PDP: Atiku won 2023 Presidential polls

 

According to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar won the 2023 presidential election based on the actual votes cast at the polling places across the nation on February 25, 2023.

The All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Executive has repeatedly attempted to intimidate and blackmail the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, and the party has labeled statements by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, that the opposition lost the election, as subjudice and part of this effort.

This was said in a statement released on Sunday in Abuja and signed by Hon. Debo Ologunagba, the PDP’s national publicity secretary.

“Nigerians are invited to note that Lai Mohammed’s comment comes after President Muhammadu Buhari made similar subjudice comment,” Ologunagba added in reference to Buhari’s widely denounced attempt to defend the rigging of the Presidential election, which is still an issue before the Tribunal.

Lai Mohammed’s attempt to defend the results of an election that was deemed to be the worst in Nigerian electoral history and that caused uproar both domestically and internationally against the Buhari administration is truly horrible.

In addition to calling well-meaning Nigerians “shameless sore losers” and claiming that President Buhari deserved “accolades” for holding a presidential election that was widely denounced,  Lai Mohammed has further demonstrated the Buhari administration’s involvement in one of the most heinous electoral frauds in democratic history. He acts as the administration’s mouthpiece.

The APC administration, lead by Buhari, is infamous for its use of deception, lies, and fabrication, therefore the party claimed it was not surprising that Lai Mohammed would continue in that direction.

This, according to the PDP, is because Nigerians are aware that Atiku Abubakar, and not the APC candidate, was the only candidate to meet all of the requirements set down for winning the presidential election, according to the real results acquired from the polling places.

The party said that this circumstance explained why “the compromised Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) refused to transmit directly and announce results as obtained from the Polling Units as required by law.”

The opposition party went on to say that it was warning the APC and the Buhari-led Federal Executive for the umpteenth time against their covert attempts to intimidate the court in the handling of the Presidential election cases still pending before the Tribunal.

The PDP will not give up until it reclaims its mandate at the Tribunal, according to a statement made by the party: “The facts of the rigging of the February 25, 2023 Presidential election are well known to Nigerians. Added Ologunagba.
