Atiku insists he'll reclaim his stolen mandate despite Peace committee meeting

Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said his meeting with the peace committee has nothing to do with his resolve to challenge Buhari's victory in court, but called for unconditional release of party members illegally arrested and detained for political reasons in the just-concluded presidential election.

Abubakar made the call ahead of the March 9 Governorship and State House of Assembly elections
on Thursday night when he and PDP leaders met with the National Peace Committee, in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Mr Paul Ibe, on Friday in Abuja,

He also called for the non deployment of the military in compliance with constitutional provisions and the subsisting judgment of the court.

Abubakar and his team claimed that the Feb. 23 presidential election was the worst in the history of the country since the return to democracy in 1999
The former vice president, who described the election as sham said it was marked by militarisation, vote suppression, intimidation in collaboration with security agencies, INEC and the ruling party to subvert the will of Nigerians.

He said that the issue of his party’s recourse to legitimate actions to reclaim the “stolen’’ mandate was not discussed at the meeting.

Atiku restated that as a democrat, he would follow laid down constitutional and democratic procedures to challenge the “electoral malfeasance”.

He urged Nigerians to come out en masse and vote during the March 9, Gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections for PDP candidates and called on the electorate to stay and defend their votes up to the collation point.
