The Presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has thanked Nigerians for turning out to vote for him in their millions and confirmed that the initial indications from the PDPs Simultaneous Vote Count show a PDP victory is assured.
Atiku in a statement issued in Abuja by his Special Assistant On Public Communication, Mr. Phrank Shaibu, said “I would like to sincerely thank the millions of people who, despite having to bear the additional burden of a postponed election, came out yesterday to vote for me and the other PDP candidates standing in this election.”
He said with the PDP’s high tech, cloud-based SVC system – which is able to collate in real-time the results from the 176,000 voting points across the nation – the Presidential candidate could boldly assure his supporters that victory was at hand.
“With strong shares of the vote in South-South, South-East as well as an increased share in South-West and North-Central, are very pleased with the progress the PDP has made. We look forward to sharing some exciting news in other parts of the country very soon, which will confound all the armchair pundits.”
The PDP Presidential candidate asked Nigerians to maximise their eternal vigilance in the next 48 hours to prevent the majority votes recorded at the polling units being disrupted by force by the APC at the collation centres.
He said, “I am familiar with how brazen and the complete lack of shame the APC can exhibit, but even I was shocked to witness just how low they went last night by accusing the PDP of ‘recruiting armed thugs’ to do just that. Why would we want to do that when we are winning?”
“Furthermore I would like to say how proud I was of the PDP supporters who conducted themselves so peacefully despite the significant provocations and threats of violence, removal and burning of ballot boxes and the likes.”
Atiku also thanked the security forces and election officials who conducted their duties with exemplary professionalism but tasked General Buhari on his promise of a free and fair election.
He said. “General Buhari you have promised our people and the world that you would conduct ‘free, fair and credible elections’ so please call off the wilder elements within your party and deliver on your promise.”

We have records to show how Buhari, APC rigged presidential election – Buba Galadima
Buba Galadima, Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, has revealed how the incumbent government allegedly rigged last month’s presidential election to retain its grip on power.
Galadima, an estranged ally of incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government of using the military to intimidate voters and inflate election results in its favour.
He spoke on Wednesday while appearing as a guest on Channels TV’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.
Galadima said the events in Rivers State were evidence of the intimidation.
“It is not an accusation, the military are good candidates of the International Criminal Court. I saw it on television where they were going to houses killing people,” the Atiku spokesperson said.
He claimed that records are available to show that Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, won the presidential election.
“They said they won and want to go to court to inspect the election materials, that is clearly to show they rigged the election.
“I am speaking with authority and I can defend it in the court of law. Have you ever heard that a respondent went to court to check the results of an election because he was not sure his agents did the right thing?” he said.
