Bola Tinubu advises Atiku Abubakar to withdraw from presidential race

Atiku Abubakar has been urged by President Bola Tinubu to abandon his ambition to lead Nigeria.

Tinubu’s comments came in response to Atiku’s claim that the country is doomed after his appeals were dismissed by the Supreme Court.

In a statement signed by Bayo Onanuga, the President’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Tinubu said: “We want to inform Alhaji Atiku that Nigeria is not doomed. It is only Atiku’s excessive ambition to become President that is doomed. Nigeria is progressing and on track to achieve its manifest destiny as one of the most respected and successful nations in the world under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Contrary to Atiku’s negative opinion about our democracy, we are delighted to announce to the world that our democracy is thriving and flourishing.

“This is evidenced by the fact that, for the first time since 1999, the composition of our National Assembly reflects the diversity and plurality of voter choices as a coalition of various parties, as opposed to the past practice where only two parties dominated the national parliament.

“In today’s Nigeria, votes matter. No amount of distortion of facts regarding our recent election by Alhaji Atiku and his partner, Peter Obi, can undermine the continuous improvement of our electoral process, which has been commended by local and international observers. As declared by the Supreme Court, IReV was not intended to be an online collation center. It was simply a public viewing center for results.”

“We would like to advise Atiku that after more than three decades of pursuing the Nigerian Presidency without success, he must now put an end to his unproductive pursuit and refrain from engaging in any activity that will further pollute the political climate and national unity.”
