- Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi seeking redress in the Apex Court against Tinubu’s presidential election victory
- Reacting, Plateau APC chieftain, Mr. Williams Dakwom, disclosed that the efforts of Atiku and Obi would be in vain
Mr. Williams Dakwom, a member of the APC presidential campaign council (PCC) in Plateau state, has predicted that Atiku Abubakar, flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi will suffer defeat at the Supreme Court.
Recall that Atiku and Obi vowed to go to the Supreme Court to challenge the dismissal of their petitions against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s election by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, (PEPT).
While Atiku said his decision to approach the apex court became necessary because the judgement was “bereft of substantial justice,” Obi, on the other hand, vowed to challenge the judgement, describing it as unjust.
Obi stated further that he would not relent in his quest for electoral justice because the PEPC ruling “is not coterminous with justice.”
