ABUJA – As proceedings at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal continue in Abuja, the nation’s capital, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has expressed confidence of its chances of reclaiming victory for its candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, if the panel deals with the issues before it without fear or favour.

That is why we reminded fellow citizens that the election was a referendum on hunger, poverty, economy, anti-corruption and what have you. “We have strong evidence that our candidate won the election and that is why they are not comfortable today. They will raise one allegation or the other against our party and when you confront them to prove same; they will keep mum and then raise yet another. Nigerians have seen through their lies and are no longer moved by such things.”
