The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has said the party is looking forward to meeting with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar in court.
This is in reaction to Atiku Abubakar’s claim that the election was not free and fair saying “However in my democratic struggle for the past three decades, I have never seen our democracy so debased as it was on Saturday, February 23, 2019”
The former Vice President therefore said that he would challenge the outcome in court.
Oshiomhole has however said Atiku is free to challenge the result in court as it’s the only lawful way to go about it.

But the APC chairman believes Atiku was never destined to be president, adding, however, that he is free to go to court.
“You cannot possibly deny anyone the right to challenge the outcome of an election however free and fair… like myself when I believed I was cheated out,” Oshiomhole said Wednesday during a briefing in Abuja.
“So, we hope and we are looking forward to meeting Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in court and the facts will be laid bare but if I might dare him, we might also choose to cross-petition.”
