President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday said that he expected the main opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and its presidential candidate at the February 23 election, Atiku Abubakar to go to court.
The opposition has been challenging the result of the election declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which declared Buhari as the winner of the presidential election.
Going to court, Buhari said was part of the democratic process.
Buhari spoke with journalists after casting his vote for the governorship and state assembly elections at the Kofar Baru 003 polling unit, Daura, Katsina State.
Asked to react to the decision by the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to challenge the outcome of the February 23 presidential election at the election tribunal, he simply said, “I expect that to happen.”
According to him, security agencies especially the Police were taking care of the flashpoints in the country to make sure that there is hitch-free election in the country.
On what would be his advice on the flashpoints and reported cases of violence across the country, this week, President Buhari said, “I will leave it to the law enforcement agencies especially the police because they have been meeting virtually on a 48-hour basis to make sure that they have identified the flashpoints, as you mentioned, wherever they are and make arrangements to counter it.”
