Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, on Tuesday, inaugurated the legal team to challenge the controversial presidential election of February 25. The team include 17 Senior Advocates of Nigeria, SAN.
Atiku had, while inaugurating the legal team at his campaign headquarters in Abuja, charged members to establish the claim of illegality in the February 25 presidential election and reclaim the mandate of the Nigerian people.
The PDP candidate instructed the legal team that apart from reclaiming the mandate from those who “undertook the electoral heist”, they should also use the opportunity of the trial to strengthen constitutional democracy in the country.
In his brief to the team, which is being headed by Chief J. K. Gadzama (SAN), at the conference room of his office at the campaign headquarters, Atiku said it was imperative that they work assiduously in reclaiming the mandate not necessarily because of him and the PDP, “but to strengthen democracy and the electoral process and for generations unborn.”
