Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has inaugurated his legal team to challenge the outcome of the presidential election.
Atiku had secured 11,262,978 votes and lost to Buhari, who polled 15,191,847 votes on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A statement issued by Paul Ibe, his media aide, noted that the legal team would be headed by Dr. Livy Uzoukwu (SAN).
He said: “I have just inaugurated my legal team and charged them with the responsibility of ensuring that our stolen mandate is retrieved.
I am encouraged by the presence of fearless men and women of the Bench. The judiciary, which had in the past discharged itself ably, is once again being called upon to deliver judgement on this matter that will be untainted by lucre and uncowed by the threat of immoral power.”
