Don’t give in to apathy - Atiku advises Nigerians

Atiku Abubakar Atiku Abubakar

The Peoples Democratic Party's, Atiku Abubakar, has advised Nigerian voters not to give in to apathy.

According to him, the alleged “electoral fraud” perpetrated by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will be reverted soon.

Atiku made the call on Wednesday, March 15, 2023 ahead of the March 18 governorship and state Houses of Assembly election.

He said, “All hope is not lost. You must never give in to apathy. I assure you that the electoral fraud perpetrated by INEC will be reversed in due course as I champion the cause to reclaim our mandate.

The former vice-president while thanking Nigerians for their immense and high sense of patriotism in bracing the myriads of odds to perform their civic duty during the February 25 presidential election, appreciated their resilience, tenacity, and courage.

“It is indeed heart-warming that you have faith in rescuing and rebuilding our great country, as envisioned by our great party, the PDP.”

“As attested to by both local and international observers, the result of the February 25 presidential election as announced by the INEC was grossly tainted and did not reflect the will of the electorates. You all have demonstrated against this blatant injustice through different mediums.

“Indeed, what INEC did in announcing the manipulated result was a clear breach of not only the 2022 Electoral Act but also its own guidelines which the electoral commission had repeatedly claimed it would uphold the standards we had seen in the Osun and Ekiti elections. The INEC chairman further ignored calls for a review of the process in line with the amended law.”
