Alhaji Atiku Abubakar wiping tears from his eyes Former vice president has explained his reason for crying when he was presented with the PDP presidential nomination form in Abuja. The support groups of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Friday purchased for him the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Nomination and Expression of Interest Forms for the 2019 presidential election. The group led by Princess Adekemi-Adesanya Eboda, National President and Global Coordinator for Women and Youth Support for Atiku (WAYS) presented the forms to Abubakar at his campaign office in Abuja. The coordinator said they resolved to tax themselves to raise the funds for the forms as expression of their commitment to support Atiku in his presidential bid. Eboda said that Nigerians, especially women were looking up to Abubakar to rescue the country. “I speak the voice of millions of mothers in Nigeria who bear the brunt of the gale of jobs losses in the country. “I speak on behalf of women of this country urging you to rescue Nigeria from this current bad situation. “To show you that we are solidly behind you, we have chosen to purchase your nomination form and expression of interest form from the PDP to contest for president in 2019 and we shall give you all of our support,” she said. A leader of one of the groups, Mr Edwin Adai on behalf of all the groups, presented the forms to Abubakar. Why is Atiku crying? Abubakar, who was emotional during the remarks, said that Eboda succeeded in making him to weep because her remarks reflected the situations of the country. “This is because she aptly described the challenges every Nigerian is facing in this country today and she believed honestly and sincerely from the bottom of her heart that I could be an instrument to addressing those challenges’’. He commended the decision of the groups for buying him the forms saying that it was the first time in his political career that his supporters would show him such love. “I have been in politics for the past three decades and in those three decades I have only been on the ballot for the presidential election only once and that was in 2007. The weeping presidential aspirant “But not once in those three decades have I received this much love from the people as you have done today by choosing to purchase nomination forms on my behalf. “By this action, there is a pact between you and me that we are going to do this work together. “Just as you gathered here together, we shall enter the race for the PDP nomination together and together also into the general election. “And by the grace of God and through your hard work, I believe that we are going to win together”, Abubakar said.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has rejected the election results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) earlier today.

Abubakar kicked against the election process which he said was “heavily militarised” and results manipulated. He was defeated by President Muhammadu Buhari with over three million votes. But in a statement he issued personally on Wednesday morning, the former vice-president said he will be challenging the election in court.

He said: “If I had lost in a free and fair election, I would have called the victor within seconds of my being aware of his victory to offer not just my congratulations, but my services to help unite Nigeria by being a bridge between the North and the South.

“However, in my democratic struggles for the past three decades, I have never seen our democracy so debased as it was on Saturday, February 23, 2019. 2007 was a challenge, but President Yar’Adua was remorseful. In 2019, it is sad to see those who trampled on democracy thumping their noses down on the Nigerian people.

“Consequently, I hereby reject the result of the February 23, 2019 sham election and will be challenging it in court.”
