Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians for distracting the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Lai Muhammed stated that Atiku and PDP are free to take their grieviance to the Supreme Court if they feel not satisfied with the judgement of the Petition Tribunal on Wednesday.
“Nigerians are tired of this orchestrated distraction, and will rather wish that the opposition, having lost at the polls and in court, will now join hands with the government to move Nigeria to the next level.
“This is more so that the judgement validating the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari was unanimous that the petition lacked merit, that the petitioners failed to prove any of the grounds upon which their case was anchored and that President Buhari is eminently qualified to contest the poll.
“It is intriguing that a party that trumpets the rule of law at every turn will present, in open court, evidence it claimed to have obtained by hacking into a supposed INEC server. Don’t they realize this is a criminal act for which they are liable? Instead of threatening to head to the Supreme Court, driven more by ego than commonsense, they should be sorry for allowing desperation to overwhelm their sense of reasoning. Enough is enough.
“We also thank Nigerians, who voted massively to re-elect President Buhari, for their continued support,” he said.
