The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Monday, March 25, asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to prepare to face its legal team at the presidential election tribunal instead of its “unnecessary fabrications, smear campaign.”
The opposition party said this in reaction to allegations by the APC that the PDP hacked into the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in relation to the results of the recent election.
The PDP claimed the APC and the current government are overweighed by the “burden of illegitimacy, following overwhelming evidence before the tribunal that they stole the presidential mandate, hence this lame attempt at blackmailing the tribunal by engaging in clear acts of subjudice.
The PDP statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan and made available to Legit.ng states further: “It is even more appalling that Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and a member of Buhari’s legal team, who should know better, would engage in this act of subjudice designed to distort facts already known to Nigerians, that our presidential candidate and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, clearly won the February 23, presidential election.
“Since it has become clear that President Buhari has no defence to present to the court, we counsel him to save the nation further stress by surrendering our mandate, which was freely given by majority of Nigerians to Atiku Abubakar.”
