PDP’s Atiku Abubakar to address serious national issues Monday


Following the Supreme Court’s judgement on Thursday, a former Vice President of Nigeria and Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, at the February 23, 2023 presidential elections, Atiku Abubakar, is to address the press on serious national issues on Monday.

The PDP Publicity Office disclosed this in a statement released Saturday noting that 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 Nigeria Atiku 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.”

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 via a seven-man panel led by the Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, 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 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.
