According to a statement signed by the All Progressive Congress (APC) spokesman, Felix Morka, the claims of PDP’s Presidential candidate for the 2023 election that the party (APC) has concluded plans to intimidate the Judiciary in order to get a favourable ruling at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal PEPT describing the claim as arrant nonsense.
In a statement to the press, PDP had alleged that the All Progressives Congress APC and its government are engaged in a plot to intimidate members of the judiciary towards unduly influencing the outcome of pending cases before the court.
According to the APC, Atiku and the PDP are merely looking for an alibi to cover their expected failure at the tribunal.
The statement read;
“Quite frankly, there is nothing in Atiku Abubakar’s statement, that is worth a reaction from the APC. It is just arrant nonsense, totally lacking in substance and cogency. Its only imaginable purpose is a childish attempt to float an alibi to deflect the shame of a highly probable defeat in court, having miserably failed to make out a credible case to justify his bogus claim that he won the last Presidential Election.
“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and our Party won the election convincingly. We have full faith and confidence in our courts to dispense electoral justice in accordance with our Constitution and all applicable laws”.
