36 presidential candidates beg Atiku to drop litigation against Buhari

The Forum of Presidential Candidates and Political Parties for Good Governance, has appealed to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, to shelve the idea of challenging the outcome of the just concluded presidential election in court.

The forum made up of chairmen and candidates of 36 political parties, who contested the election with the winner, President Muhammadu Buhari, specifically urged Atiku to disregard the advice of those asking him to challenge the outcome of the poll in court.

The chairman of the forum, Mr. Shittu Kabir, stated this in a statement he read on behalf of his colleagues at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.

He said that the group has started a robust discussion with Buhari and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress with a view to being magnanimous in victory by setting up a government of national unity.

The group also urged the independent National Electoral Commission, to improve on its operational logistics next Saturday and ensure that all Nigerians willing to vote are able to exercise their franchise without hindrance.

    It is obvious that Nigeria is full of all manner of people. Let us review Buhari himself. In 2003, 2007 & 2011, he contested elections to be president, he lost but on each occasion he went to court.
    So why is it wrong (in any form) for Atiku to approach d court for justice.
    There can be no peace without justice. Peter Touch sang way back 40+ years back. “I don’t want no peace, all I need is equal rights and justice”
    These (equal rights and justice) are the bedrock of any nation that wants peace.
    Pls let’s stop this nonsense of begging someone to forgo his right in d name of peace!!!
