ACF’s National Publicity Secretary, Muhannad Ibrahim Biu, in a telephone interview with The Nation said, Atiku’s challenge of the presidential election’s outcome was commendable, but that, he should accept the verdict, as the Supreme Court has put an end to the legal tussle.
According to the ACF spokesman, “ACF once again call on Alhaji Atiku as a true democrat to accept the verdict of Nigerians and the affirmation of the Supreme Court of President Muhammadu Buhari victory at the 2019 polls.
“Now that the Supreme Court has put an end to the legal tussle. The challenges of elections through the due process of the democratic institution is part of strengthening our democracy.
“We, however, commend the former Vice President for challenging the Presidential election up to its logical conclusion at the Supreme Court.
