The post-Presidential Election drama still thrives as Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has joined the latest in the list of aggrieved candidates to take out his disappointment on a fellow political contender.
Atiku shaded the Labour Party, LP Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, after failing to cling to the number one seat in the country.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said on Thursday, that he believes his former ally turned opponent, Obi, could not have won Saturday’s presidential election.
He said Mr Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party, LP, could not have gotten the constitutionally required spread needed to be declared president.
Apart from winning majority votes, a candidate is also expected to get 25 per cent of votes in at least 24 states to be declared the presidential election winner.
In his speech, Atiku acknowledged that Mr Obi’s candidacy denied PDP votes from its traditional strongholds in the Southeast and South-South regions but said victory in those regions cannot be sufficient for Mr Obi to be declared president.
