‘Tinubu sent people to beg me’ – Atiku reveals when he will end fight with President



The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general election, Atiku Abubakar, has said he will drop his fight with President Bola Tinubu after the Supreme Court rules on his appeal against the judgement of the tribunal.


Atiku, who finished behind Tinubu in the election, had challenged the victory of the President in court.


However, the former vice-president lost as the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal struck out his petition.


Despite the tribunal’s ruling, Atiku continued his case at a United States court, which eventually ordered the release of official documents Atiku is seeking to include in his appeal at the Supreme Court.

He had argued that there were discrepancies in the Chicago
State University (CSU) certificate Tinubu submitted to INEC which should have
rendered him ineligible to contest the election.


Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, Atiku
said: “I have already filed my appeal against him at the Supreme Court.


“It is only when the court rules that he is right that I
will drop this fight; in other words, I will drop this fight when the court
rules because there is no court higher than the Supreme Court.”


When asked if he was under pressure from Tinubu to drop the
case, Atiku claimed that after the election, he learnt that some governors were
sent by Tinubu to reach out to him.


“I didn’t even let them come to my house,” Atiku revealed.
