Supreme Court verdict: Judiciary hijacked by dictatorial cabal, Atiku laments

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party at the 2019 presidential election, on Wednesday criticized the verdict of the Supreme Court on the 2019 presidential elections on Wednesday.

Although he accepted the verdict, Mr Abubakar said the top court has been hijacked by Mr Buhari’s dictatorial tendencies, even though he accepted its verdict.

A panel of seven judges led by Muhammad Tanko dismissed Mr Abubakar’s appeal against the ruling of the presidential election petitions tribunal last month.

Mr Abubakar said the ruling showed the Supreme Court had also been undermined and rendered ineffective as part of Mr Buhari’s alleged repressive tactics. He said the media and the electoral commission were not spared by the president.

He added Nigerians would decide whether or not the Supreme Court was fair and courageous in its ruling on the 2019 elections, which held on February 23.

He also said he would continue to push for a better Nigeria, but expressed heavy misgivings about the country’s ability to emerge from its current situation.
