Nigeria’s main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has expresses shock at the judgment of the Supreme Court on the Presidential election petition filed by the party and its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus said the verdict of the court had come but that the final judgement comes from God.
The Supreme Court had upheld the September 11 judgment of the Justice Mohammed Garba-led Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal which affirmed President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the polls.
Reacting Atiku said: “To those who think they have broken my spirit, I am sorry to disappoint you. I am too focused on Nigeria to think about myself. I gave up that luxury twenty years ago. The question is not if I am broken. The question is if Nigeria is whole?
“This is not a time for too many words. It will suffice for me to remind Nigeria of this – we are an independent nation and we are the architects of our fate. If we do not build a free Nigeria, we may end up destroying her, and God forbid that that should be the case.”
