– This comes after a group had stated that the PDP 2019 Presidential candidate plans to lead a massive protest
According to the latest report, the former Vice President and 2019 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Alh. Atiku Abubakar has denied allegations that he plans to lead a protest over the claim by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC that it didn’t transmit the 2019 Presidential election result via server.
A report via a Group on Twitter which claimed to be that of the People’s Democratic Party Support group tweeted a statement in quote and attributed it to Alh. Atiku Abubakar on Saturday evening.
The Group alleged that Atiku claimed he would lead a massive protest that has never been witnessed before.
“My Server Results Are Authentic and If judges frustrate the Justice we will take over the street. I will lead all Nigerians in a massive protest that mankind have never witness before,” @YouthSupportPDP tweeted.
However, Alh. Atiku Abubakar in a response on Sunday morning has come out to deny the allegations as he said he never made such comments.
He termed the statement as fake and the work of mischief makers.
“The quote purportedly attributed to me with respect to INEC Server, an issue currently before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal is fake and the handiwork of mischief makers,” Atiku tweeted on Sunday.
Following the outcome of the 2019 Presidential Election, Atiku Abubakar and the opposition party, PDP had headed to the Presidential Election Tribunal where they had filed an application seeking access to inspect the server and smart cards used by the electoral body during the 2019 Presidential election.
