Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar explained why his party is protesting the Independent National Election Commission (INEC) national headquarters in Abuja.
The former vice president said the protest took place because all provisions of the current election law were completely contrary.
It was earlier reported within Nigeria that Atiku had led a protest at INEC’s national headquarters in Abuja.
PDP President, Iyorchia Ayu, other party leaders and supporters were also present at the rally at INEC headquarters.
Speaking to journalists outside the gates of the INEC headquarters in Abuja, Atiku also vowed that the protests would continue.
Atiku said, “All the provisions of the current Electoral law have been completely contravened.
We protested, INEC did not listen and announced the results.
“That’s why we object. We have the right to protest and will continue for a very long time.
Whether every day or every other day “We have the right to protest under the constitution and that does not prevent us from going to court,” he said.
Atiku and his Labor Party counterpart Peter Obi lost the presidential election on 25 February to Bola Tinubu of the APC.
The former Vice President came second to the winner and President-elect Tinubu.
