The All Progressives Congress has advised the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, to accept his defeat as a statesman.
APC in a statement issued by its spokesman, Felix Morka, said Nigeria was greater than Atiku’s unrealized presidential ambition, describing the former Vice President as a serial loser.
The ruling party which stated this while responding to Atiku’s world press conference on Monday, following the Supreme Court’s ruling that upheld President Bola Tinubu’s election, said Atiku and PDP were delusional to have thought that they would get victory with their illogic evidence.
It would be recalled that following his defeat at the apex court, Atiku said the judiciary had become the “lost hope” of the common man.
The PDP candidate also claimed that incontrovertible evidence showed that Tinubu broke the law by submitting a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
However, Morka responding to him, said: “It is delusional for Atiku, and his degenerate PDP, to have expected the courts to rely on their bogus, flimsy, unverifiable, uncorroborated, illogical and hearsay evidence to upturn an election that was conducted in substantial compliance with the Constitution and electoral laws of our land.
“Thankfully, it does not lie in Atiku’s mouth to declare what constitutes ‘incontrovertible evidence’.
“That is the constitutional duty of the courts, which they have discharged honourably and creditably.
“For a serial election loser whose life ambition is to rule the country, we understand how pained and utterly distraught Atiku must be.
“Atiku, you are right that this is not and cannot be all about you. Yes, it is about Nigeria. Nigeria is greater than your unrealized ambition to be president. Nigeria must move and have moved on.”
