Atiku says he has fought a good fight for Nigerian People

The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) has reacted to the dismissal of the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential election of February 23, 2019.

Atiku has said he believes that only God is infallible everywhere, and only Nigerians are infallible in our democracy.

“I must accept that the judicial route I chose to take, as a democrat, has come to a conclusion.”

Atiku added, that Nigeria as a country, needs a strong judiciary and an impartial electoral umpire.

“Whether justice was done, is left to the Nigerian people to decide. As a democrat, I fought a good fight for the Nigerian people. I will keep on fighting for Nigeria and for democracy, and also for justice.

In a democracy, you need a strong judiciary, a free press, and an impartial electoral umpire. Nigeria has none of those three elements as at today. One man, one woman, one youth, one vote, should be the only way to make gains in a democracy. And when that is thwarted, the clock starts to tick.

The Nigerian judiciary, just like every estate of our realm, has been sabotaged and undermined by an overreaching and dictatorial cabal, who has undone almost all the democratic progress the Peoples Democratic Party and its administrations nurtured for sixteen years, up until 2015.

To those who think they have broken my spirit, I am sorry to disappoint you. I am too focused on Nigeria to think about myself. I gave up that luxury twenty years ago. The question is not if I am broken. The question is if Nigeria is whole?

I was a democrat, I am a democrat, and I will always continue to be a democrat. May God bless Nigeria”, he concluded.
