Why Atiku Abubakar May Also Lose In Court – Agbakoba
Constitutional lawyer Olisa Agbakoba (SAN) has explained that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, may find it difficult to prove that the votes in the Southeast were reduced.
In an interview with Vanguard, he noted that at this stage, Atiku should assume the role of a statesman instead of going to court.
The senior lawyer insisted that there is a lot the former vice president can do even though he is not the Preident instead of going to court
“I feel that going to court will not necessarily prove that the election was marred by massive irregularities,” Agbakoba said.
“I feel that the stage Abubakar Atiku has attained now is a national one. And having garnered 12 million votes, I feel that, against all odds, the side of irregularities that came out of the election predicts more to the weak electoral processes that we have.
“I should advise that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar moves into the position of a statesman and leaves a legacy by assisting the civil society, the small parties and the PDP in reconstructing Nigeria on the question of a strong electoral system and the question of a strong legal system.
“There’s a lot Atiku can do even though he is not the President.
“At 74, 73 or 72 years of age, I feel that this should be his last chance. And more so, what will the petition’s outcome be?
