All hope is not lost, I have confident of victory Atiku assures Nigerians. Read more...

Atiku at a world press conference in Abuja,
he commended Nigerians for choosing
democracy and for voting for him on
Saturday, urging them to remain calm.
“For my fellow Nigerians who feel angry,
disillusion and let down by the process, I
appeal to you to remain calm and steadfast,
Rome was not built-in a day.
“We have the real figures, we have the facts
that have spoken so loudly on Saturday,
February 23, 2019.
“As I have always said, this year is my three
decades in Nigeria’s struggle for democracy,
and this is the worst election in those 30
years.
“I told Gen. Abdsulsalami Abubakar two
nights ago when he called me that not even
the military conducted such a worst election.
“This is a long journey but I am confident of
victory. All hope is not lost, stay strong. By
the grace of God we shall triumph,” he said.
Abubakar said that “Democracy is the
government of the people and by the people
only when the people’s choice prevails”.
He alleged that on the election day, Nigerians
witnessed the implementation of grand theft
of the people’s will.
He said that in Akwa Ibom for instance, the
result showed a statistical impossibility of a 62
per cent drop in voters’ numbers from the
2015 elections, even where voter registration
and Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) collection
rates were much higher.

“This is why voter suppression took place.
“This pattern was repeated in strongholds of
PDP including in states like Delta, Rivers, Abia
and Benue States.
“As this was occurring, we saw another
statistical impossibility where the real numbers
tallied in numbers increased astronomically in
Borno State by an almost miraculous 82 per
cent in the midst of insecurity.
“This pattern was also repeated in other
strongholds of the APC states.
“One begins to ask if insecurity is conducive to
higher voter turnout and security is
antithetical to high voter turnout,” he said.
Atiku said that it was curious that the PDP’s
margin of victory in states outside the South/
East and South/South were extremely slim
across board, describing it again as a
statistical impossibility.
He said that the figures declared by INEC as
results of Feb. 23 elections “do not add up at
all’’.
“My dear Nigerians, it is for this reason that
I Atiku Abubakar reject the result declared
by the INEC which declared Muhammadu
Buhari as duly returned by the majority of
the lawful votes.
“I am conferring with not just my party but
also Nigerian people on the next step which
will be revealed to the public shortly,’’ he
said.
He, however, urged the international investors
and friends of Nigeria not to poll out of the
country (NAN).
