The All Progressives Congress (APC), has slammed Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections.
The APC says the allegation made by the Atiku Abubakar against it lacks substance.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Felix Morka, in a statement issued on Saturday, described Atiku’s allegations as arrant nonsense.
He said there was nothing in Atiku’s statement that was worth a reaction from the ruling party.
The spokesperson said Atiku’s statement alleged that the APC and its government are engaged in a plot to intimidate members of the judiciary towards unduly influencing the outcome of pending cases before the court.
Morka stressed Atiku and his minions offered no evidence to support their wild, hollow, and mischievous allegations.
The spokesperson stressed that President Bola Tinubu and the APC won the election convincingly, adding that the ruling party has faith and confidence in the courts to dispense electoral justice in accordance with the Constitution and all applicable laws.
He added: “Quite frankly, there is nothing in Atiku Abubakar’s statement that is worth a reaction from the APC. It is just arrant nonsense, totally lacking in substance and cogency.
“It’s only imaginable purpose is a childish attempt to float an alibi to deflect the shame of a highly probable defeat in court, having miserably failed to make out a credible case to justify his bogus claim that he won the last Presidential Election.”
