Ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar has reiterated that he would retrieve his mandate at the presidential election petition tribunal.
Atiku, who petitioned INEC, and president-elect, Bola Tinubu said it is high time the anti-democratic entities got discarded in the country.
He stated this in his congratulatory message to Gov Ahmad Fintiri, who won his re-election in Adamawa state.
Atiku Abubakar has made a bold statement that his rival Bola Tinubu is wielding his mandate and he would be coming for it soon.
In his congratulatory message, Atiku described Fintiri’s victory as a well-deserved win that should serve as a lesson for other anti-democratic forces.
“Congratulations, Gov Ahmadu Fintiri, on your deserved reelection as governor of Adamawa State. Thank you to the people of Adamawa and men and women of goodwill for staying the course in resisting coupists and enemies of democracy from having their way.
“The lesson from this exercise and others is the need for Nigerians to be vigilant and never give in to anti-democratic forces whose objective is to snatch, run with and undermine the mandate of the people as freely expressed in their votes.” Atiku vows to reclaim presidential mandate from Tinubu
Meanwhile, Atiku used the opportunity to aim a dig at his rival, the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, with whom he dragged to the presidential election petition tribunal to challenge and seek redress for the outcome of the presidential polls.
Atiku wrote: “By the way, it is not yet uhuru as we still have one more major mandate to reclaim, and together as ONE, we shall accomplish the task for the good of our country and its people.”
