Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, at the Februarry 25 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar will address the press on national issues on Monday.
In a statement released Saturday by the PDP Publicity Office, the presidential candidate wishes to speak on very serious and important national issues.
The statement reads, “The presidential candidate of our great party, the PDP, in the February 25, 2023, presidential election and former Vice President of the Federal Republic of NigeriaAtiku Abubakar, Wazirin Adamawa, will address a crucial press conference on issues of serious importance to the nation.
“Date is Monday, October 30, 2023 at PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Abuja. The time is time is 11am prompt.”
The planned press conference comes shortly after the Supreme Court judgment, which dismissed the former vice president’s appeal for lacking in merit and affirmed President Bola Tinubu the winner of the February presidential election.
Recall that the Supreme Court on Thursday, upheld President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s election win, bringing to an end a legal challenge brought by his two main rivals, Alhaji Atiku Waziri Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party and Mr Peter obi of the Labour Party, LP, who argued that his victory was marred by irregularities.
The supreme court reportedly struck out the appeals of both the PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar as well as that of the LP’s Presidential candidate, Peter Obi for lack of merit on both appeals thereby, availing 71-year-old Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, a clear mandate to govern Africa’s most populous nation, which is grappling with double-digit inflation, foreign currency shortages, a weakening naira, widespread insecurity and crude oil theft.
