Buhari vs Atiku: How I would have reacted if PDP won presidency – Falana
Rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, has said that he would have been surprised if the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had won last weekend’s presidential election.
The senior lawyer stated this yesterday during an interview on Hard Copy, a Channels Television programme, which was monitored by our correspondent.
According to him, Atiku’s chances of claiming the peoples’ mandate by defeating the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, in court are “tough”.
He said: “I would have been surprised if Atiku had won. Atiku’s emergence has negative implications. He will have to defend many negative comments by Obasanjo.
“He is under investigation by the United States Government. He never came out to deny the representation that he will enrich his friends. Atiku was going to sell the NNPC to his friends.”
Asked if Atiku could win in court, Falana said: “Atiku’s chances in court are very tough.”
