The Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has denied a statement attributed to him circulating in support of the outcome for the 2023 presidential election.
Atiku in a statement on Saturday described the statement as fake.
He said the fake statement did not emanate from him or his office, adding that people should treat the press statement as untrue.
He reiterated his commitment alongside his party, the PDP to challenge the outcome of the election.
“I have been notified of a fake press release attributed to me and purportedly giving legitimacy to the widely rigged presidential election of February 25.
“The so-called press release did not emanate from me or my office, and it should be treated with repudiation, untrue, and deliberately contrived by those who illegally appropriated the mandate of the Nigerian people.
“For the avoidance of any doubt, I wish to state categorically that my lawyers still have my unflinching mandate to challenge the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.
“I join other lovers of democracy in Nigeria and friends of our great country in the outright rejection of the pre-determined outcome of the February 25 election.
“I shall continue to challenge the legality of that election alongside my party, the Peoples Democratic Party.
“The decision to challenge the sham election of February 25, the worst election in our democratic history, is not predicated on my personal interest but on the interest of Nigeria and its people
