The Peoples Democratic Party on Thursday faulted the declaration of All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, as the winner of Saturday’s presidential election, insisting that its flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar, won the keenly contested poll.
The party said it has commenced process of reclaiming its mandate through the court.
The main opposition party disclosed this in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba.
Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor, was declared the president-elect after the 70-year-old polled 8,794,726 votes to win the 2023 presidential election.
The INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, announced Tinubu as the winner at the International Collation Centre in Abuja during the early hours of Wednesday.
In the same vein, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party has declared that he actually won the 2023 presidential election.
According to him, he was robbed of his mandate which he can only retrieve in a court of law.
Obi said this yesterday during his first media briefing since after Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.
He said, “we’ll explore all legal options to retrieve our mandate. We won the election. I’m fully committed to a better future for the country and nothing can stop that.
“For the election on Saturday go out there and vote. I’ll be part of it, I assure you.
