1.6m vote Claims: Atiku, PDP into depression, hallucination – APC

Tom Okpe, Abuja

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has noted that the Presidential Candidate of the major opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in the just concluded Presidential Election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s and his party are into post- election depression and hallucination.

Alhaji Atiku had claimed he won the Presidential Election with 1.6 million votes ahead of the acclaimed winner, President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC as declared by the Independent Nationàl Electoral Commission (INEC).

The 2019 general election was also described as free, fair and credible by both International and Local Observers.

The APC through it’s Spokesman, Mallam Lanre Issah- Onilu’ told journaliats in Abuja on Wednesday that;

“After weeks of dilly-dallying, the PDP has woken up to the stark reality of its electoral defeat and decided to follow the constitutional path of filing a petition at the Election Tribunal.

However, of all the prayers of Atiku before the Election Tribunal, which are at best hollow, the most ridiculous is his claim that the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) indicated he ‘won’ the Presidential Election by 1.6million votes”.

The APC said vast majority of Nigerians reaffirmed their unshaken belief in President Muhammadu Buhari to continue to steer the affairs of the country for another four years stating, “we have watched in disbelief and utter amusement how the PDP and its Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, have engaged in series of circus shows to cheer up their crestfallen and disillusioned members.

“While the APC is not oblivious of the PDP’s antics to discredit the credible presidential electoral process, acknowledged by local and international observers, we sympathise with Atiku for the crushing defeat handed him by President Buhari through the votes of Nigerians.

“Judging by Atiku and PDP’s recent utterances and actions, it is now clear that they have slipped into severe depression and post-defeat hallucination that have left many Nigerians questioning their current state of mind.

“A few questions would suffice: Is this phantom figure of 1.6million votes Dubai-invented? Was the result sold to Atiku by his numerous marabouts, who we understand, had assured him that the last election was a done deal for him?

“Most importantly, we note Atiku’s consistent reference to the “INEC server” as if he is the custodian of that platform. Indeed, Atiku’s constant reference to the INEC server should raise concern as it is becoming apparent that he and the PDP are up for some dastard activities that are targeted at jeopardizing the INEC database and internal storage system.

We recall the widespread reported cases of several programmed card readers that were retrieved from some PDP agents and their failed attempt to hack the INEC database in the leadup to the then postponed presidential election”.

The ruling party remind Atiku and PDP that Nigerians saw through the devious schemes aimed at thwarting their will. Consequently, majority of the voters handed them a harsh verdict remains sacrosanct.

“We call on INEC and the security agencies to be on red alert to ensure that Atiku and the other desperate characters in the PDP are not able to execute their evil plans”, Onilu’ said.
