Nigeria Is Greater Than Your Unrealized Presidential Ambition - APC Replies Atiku


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has formally replied to the recent comment by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the February 25 election, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar condemning the Supreme Court verdict which dismissed his appeal against the election of President Bola Almed Tinubu 

The ruling party reacting to a press conference by Abubakar on Monday organised to react to the ruling of the supreme court that upheld the election of President Tinubu, says Nigeria is greater than the “unrealized” presidential ambition of Atiku 

Following his defeat at the supreme court, the former vice-president said the judiciary has become the lost hope of the common man, after the apex thrown out his claimed fresh evidence  against President Tinubu's qualification to contest the poll 

But APC in a statement on Monday by its  spokesperson, Felix Morka  said  Abubakar should accept defeat as a statesman.

“It is delusional for Atiku, and his degenerate PDP, to have expected the courts to rely on their bogus, flimsy, unverifiable, uncorroborated, illogical and hearsay evidence to upturn an election that was conducted in substantial compliance with the Constitution and electoral laws of our land,” the statement reads.

“Thankfully, it does not lie in Atiku’s mouth to declare what constitutes ‘incontrovertible evidence’.

“That is the constitutional duty of the courts and which they have discharged honorably and creditably.

“For a serial election loser whose life ambition is to rule the country, we understand how pained and utterly distraught Atiku must be.

“However, to continue to deny and disrespect the collective will of Nigerians, disparage the judiciary, incite rage and call our democratic institutions into question is beyond the pale.

“Atiku, you are right that this is not and cannot be all about you. Yes, it is about Nigeria. Nigeria is greater than your unrealized ambition to be president. Nigeria must move and has moved on.”

Morka said Abubakar missed an opportunity during his press conference to redeem himself as a stateman.
