Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the dismissal of the suit by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking the disqualification of Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima by the Supreme Court.
In his ruling on Friday, Justice Adamu Jauro held that the suit was grossly lacking in merit and slammed a N2 million fine on the party for poke-nosing into the internal affairs of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Reacting via his official Twitter handle, the PDP presidential flag bearer in the 2023 election said the dismissal of the suit is not a setback in his quest for justice.
Atiku stated that his legal team are ready to prove that the February 25 election was fraudulent and failed to comply with the laws of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The former vice president also urged his supporters to exercise patience and conduct themselves in a peaceful manner as the litigation at the election tribunal continues.
"The Supreme Court's dismissal of the case of the @OfficialPDPNig is not a setback to my quest for justice.
"Our legal team are primed to robustly prove that the election of February 25 was fraudulent, did not comply with the constitutional requirements and the electoral guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission, @inecnigeria and that the announced winner was not even qualified to contest the poll.
"The battle for democracy and the enthronement of a new order to spur growth and development in Nigeria is one to which I have committed my all and for which I am not ready to walk away at this point when our nation is at crossroads.
"We know that sooner than later, our esteemed Justices will make the pronouncement that will serve as a befitting requiem for mandate bandits.
"I urge my supporters to exercise patience and conduct themselves peaceably as we diligently conduct our litigation at the Presidential Election Tribunal Court", the statement reads.
