Spread the love

2019 Presidential election has come and gone with Nigerians and International observers reacting on the outcome of the election.

In this special report, ACEGIST follows one of the strong contenders, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of People Democratic Party ( PDP) on his official twitter handle @Atiku to cull his reactions for you as tweets severally.

In his many tweets, Atiku gave reason why he didn’t congratulate President Muhammudu Buhari as he noted he didn’t loss the election under free and fair atmosphere as he added the election was massively rigged in favour of All Progressive Party, (APC).

Let us read full details of what Atiku Abubakar has to say:

“I thank the Nigerian people who trooped out in their millions to perform their civic duty this past Saturday.

The patriotism of Nigerians is heartwarming and affirms my of-repeated statement that we are brothers and sisters born from the womb of one mother Nigeria.

With regards to the Presidential elections that took place on February 23, 2019, it is clear that there were manifest and premeditated malpractices in many states which negate the results announced.

One obvious red flag is the statistical impossibility of states ravaged by the war on terror generating much higher voter turnouts than peaceful states.

The suppressed votes in my strongholds are so apparent and amateurish, that I am ashamed as a Nigerian that such could be allowed to happen.

How can total votes in Akwa-Ibom, for instance, be 50% less than what they were in 2015?

Another glaring anomaly is the disruption of voting in strongholds of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos, Akwa-Ibom, Rivers and diverse other states, with the authorities doing little or nothing and in some cases facilitating these unfortunate situations.

In some areas of the country, such as, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Imo states, troops deployed for the elections turned their guns on the very citizens they were meant to protect.

This is condemnable and should not be associated with our electoral process in the future

I am a democrat and there are democratic avenues available to present the truth to the nation and the watching world.

Already, many international observers have given their verdicts, which corroborate our observations.

I am sure more will come in the coming hours and days.

If I had lost in a free and fair election, I would have called the victor within seconds of my being aware of his victory to offer not just my congratulations, but my services to help unite Nigeria by being a bridge between the North and the South.

However, in my democratic struggles for the past three decades, I have never seen our democracy so debased as it was on Saturday, February 23, 2019.

2007 was a challenge, but President Yar’Adua was remorseful.

In 2019, it is sad to see those who trampled on democracy thumping their noses down on the Nigerian people.

Consequently, I hereby reject the result of the February 23, 2019 sham election and will be challenging it in court.

I want to assure my supporters and the entire Nigerian people that together, we will not allow democracy to be emasculated.

I hope and pray Nigerians will someday summon the courage to defend democracy.

That is the only way we can move away from being the world headquarters for extreme poverty”.
