President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been told by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop their unnecessary fabrications and smear campaign and prepare to face the opposition’s legal team at the presidential election tribunal.

Responding to a petition by Festus Keyamo, the spokesman of the campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari, who accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of hacking into the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (EFCC) and went further to petition the Department of State Services (DSS), the PDP said President Buhari is overweighed by the burden of illegitimacy, following overwhelming evidence before the tribunal that he stole the presidential mandate.

The spokesman of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan described the petition as an attempt at blackmailing the tribunal by engaging in clear acts of subjudice. The party spokesman further stated that the facts and issues touching on the INEC server, were already within the public domain and Nigerians are already at home with them.

He said, “By resorting to shadow-boxing outside the tribunal, President Buhari and the APC have shown that they have no defence to present to the court against PDP’s submission that they stole our mandate. It is even more appalling that Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and a member of Buhari’s legal team, who should know better, would engage in this act of subjudice designed to distort facts already known to Nigerians, that our Presidential Candidate and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, clearly won the February 23 Presidential election.

“Since it has become clear that President Buhari has no defence to present to the court, we counsel him to save the nation further stress by surrendering our mandate, which was freely given by majority of Nigerians to Atiku Abubakar”.
