The President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, has on Thursday, warned the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, against resorting to self-help, over the outcome of the February 23, 2019, Presidential election.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, issued out the warning in a Press Conference, which was attended by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
He said that it is absurd that Atiku has hired a lobbying firm, to convince the United States, US, not to recognise the re-election of Buhari, until the Supreme Court rules on the suit he filed at the 2019 Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
Lai Mohammed added that, it is unfortunate that Atiku is thinking of replicating the Venezuelan model right here in Nigeria.
His words: “As you must have noticed in recent times, posters bearing the picture of former Vice President and the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, with the inscription: “THE PUKKA, H.E. ATIKU ABUBAKAR, THE REAL AND THE RIGHT”, have surfaced across major streets, in Abuja.

 “The appearance of these posters coincide with the Media report, that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has hired a US lobbying firm, to convince the United States not to recognise the re-election of President Buhari, until the Supreme Court has ruled on the suit by the PDP Presidential Candidate.

 “The posters and the hiring of US lobbyists, the latest of such by the PDP Candidate, have triggered questions about what Alhaji Abubakar is up to. Is he starting a fresh campaign after the elections have been won and lost?

“Has he rescinded his decision to challenge the results of the Presidential election in court, perhaps after realising that the results he claimed to have obtained from the INEC back server are cooked? Is he now going for self-help? What really is Atiku’s motive?

“Gentlemen, we are aware of Media reports, that the PDP Presidential Candidate, on Wednesday, distanced himself from the posters that are circulating in Abuja. He also reportedly denied hiring US lobbyists, claiming tongue-in-cheek, that the APC fabricated the report.

“If the Media reports are right, it means that the former Vice President has suddenly realised the grave implication of his actions, hence has decided to beat a quick retreat, before it is too late.

“As a self-avowed Democrat, he should realise that the only lawful channel for challenging the result of an election, is through the courts. Resorting to self-help, as he seems to be doing now, is an act of desperation, and the consequences are dire.”
