Mike Ozekhome, SAN, one of the senior lawyers behind the petition against president Muhammadu Buhari, by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last general elections, has said his client Atiku Abubakar has solid evidence to enable sack Buhari.
The lawyer Mike Ozekhome, SAN, said it was the expectation of his client “that the judiciary, as the last hope of the common man, will be dauntless in addressing the substance of the petition by the peoples’ candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the collective quest to retrieve a stolen mandate through the legal process,” according to Sun.
“We have made a solid case before the panel. Our client, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has also presented his case supported by credible evidence.
“We had presented incontrovertible evidence to show that our presidential mandate was stolen. Every Nigerian now looks on to the judicial officers for justice.
“Nigerians are waiting and hoping that the judiciary will have the courage to do justice in the presidential election petition.”
PDP alongside Atiku insist that Buhari was not qualified to have contested the election and as such should be disqualified.
