The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has stated that the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, should apologize to Nigerians.
According Lai Mohammed, that should be Atiku’s next .over instead of appealing the ruling of the Presidential Election Tribunal.
”Nigerians are tired of this orchestrated distraction, and will rather wish that the opposition, having lost at the polls and in court, will now join hands with the government to move Nigeria to the next level.
”This is more so that the judgement validating the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari was unanimous that the petition lacked merit, that the petitioners failed to prove any of the grounds upon which their case was anchored and that President Buhari is eminently qualified to contest the poll,” he said.
Lai Mohammed added that the opposition should be happy that they are not being prosecuted for their poor evidence against the ruling party .
”It is intriguing that a party that trumpets the rule of law at every turn will present, in open court, evidence it claimed to have obtained by hacking into a supposed INEC server.
Don’t they realize this is a criminal act for which they are liable? Instead of threatening to head to the Supreme Court, driven more by ego than commonsense, they should be sorry for allowing desperation to overwhelm their sense of reasoning. Enough is enough,” he said.
He concluded by thanking the Tribunal for taking to to explain to Nigerians in detail how it arrived at its judgement. ”We also thank Nigerians, who voted massively to re-elect President Buhari, for their continued support,” he said.
