Timi Frank Reveals Why Atiku Should Be Declared Winner Of 2023 Presidential Election

Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has asked the Presidential Election Petitions Court (PEPC) to declare the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, the winner of the 2023 election.

He stated that Atiku should be declared the winner of the February 25 presidential election following the admission of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that the PDP flagbearer won 21 states instead of the 12 States credited to him.

Frank said it was clear that the former vice president won the presidential election against the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, who was declared the winner by INEC.

In a statement in Abuja on Sunday, Frank urged the appeal court justices to use the opportunity afforded by INEC’s revelation to redeem the lost image of the judiciary.

Frank also called on the tribunal justices to be courageous in doing substantial justice in the present case, despite high-wired pressures and intimidations against them.

He said, “Now that the tribunal’s justices have heard arguments from all the parties in the suits, they should know that Nigerians are looking forward to them to do substantial justice and not ruling based on technicalities.

“We want to remind you that whatever judgement you give at the end of the day will remain as precedent in future. We implore you not to hand down a precedent where clear acts of criminality, as witnessed during the presidential election, will now be the law and order of the day in Nigeria.

“We strongly hold that this is not time to rule based on technicalities or to throw out well-reasoned, germane, valid and powerful submissions by the opposition parties.

“We want to remind you that this is one case where the world is waiting for the outcome and besides, the case presents the Nigerian judiciary an ample opportunity to write its name in gold in the heart of Nigerians and to prominently emplace Nigeria in the map of countries that believe and uphold the principles of fairness, equity and justice. Whatever you do with this judgement is what you will be remembered for.”
