The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has expressed hope that the election tribunal will deliver judgement in his favour on Wednesday.

“We are hopeful of the judgement of the tribunal,” Atiku’s spokesman Paul Ibe told The Guardian correspondent.

“It is not about Atiku or the PDP, it is about you and me, every Nigerian that we are hopeful Atiku will be declared winner.”

Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president of Nigeria is challenging the election result which Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared President Muhammadu Buhari the winner.

The INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu said Buhari polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat Atiku, who pulled 11,262,978 votes.

However, both Atiku and the PDP said the election was ‘massively’ rigged by the APC.

Both Atiku and Buhari await the Justice Muhammed Lawan Garba-led tribunal judgement on Wednesday, September 11 2019, Ibe said,

“Atiku and PDP are optimistic that the voice of the people is upheld.”

However, Ibe did not disclose Atiku’s next line of action if the tribunal affirms Buhari’s victory at the presidential election.
