Atiku Vows to Reclaim His Mandate from President Tinubu through Court Verdict

Must read

BAUCHI, Nigeria – Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has vowed to reclaim his mandate from President Bola Tinubu via a court verdict.

He described Tinubu’s government as temporary, alleging that it was founded on electoral infractions.

The former Vice President expressed these views during a meeting with PDP stakeholders for elected officials of the party in Bauchi State on Saturday, June 3, 2023.

During the meeting, the PDP urged its members in the National Assembly not to be “rubber stamp members,” but to serve as a formidable opposition.

“You are there to serve as a formidable opposition to this temporary administration,” Atiku said to the gathered PDP members.

“Based on the results announced by the INEC and pending the determination of electoral challenges in the court, our members-elect are not the majority in the National Assembly.”

He encouraged them to prepare for work as an effective and constructive opposition, while also readying themselves for the potential role of the majority party, should the court cases be resolved in their favor.

“So, for the time being, they have to prepare to work as an effective, constructive opposition while also preparing for possible roles of the majority party when the cases are resolved. A Government in-waiting, so to speak,” Atiku added.
