A suit by Abubakar Atiku challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari is one that is bound to fail, as it lacks merit and is a waste of time of the Judiciary, according to the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO).
The group in a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, stated that Atiku knew that he had no chance of victory even before the elections and is only attempting this suit to hoodwink Nigerians and ultimately waste the time of the country’s judiciary.
“The loser of the 2019 Presidential Elections, Atiku Abubakar has yet to wake up from his hallucination that he can steal a chance to defeat President Buhari in an election. Mr Atiku never had a chance at victory and would never.”

“If the Presidential elections were to hold ten times, Atiku would lose ten times to President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Atiku knew it, even before the elections were held, that he never stood a chance at beating President Buhari at the polls. He continues to allow marabouts and his paid praise-singers to sing him tunes of chances which he never had.”
BMO noted that Atiku’s loss at the 2019 Presidential Polls was evidence of Nigerians rejecting the former Vice President.
“The majority of Nigerians have rejected Atiku. And he must come to terms with that. While we are not against his exercise of his constitutional right to seek justice in a court of law, we are insisting that Nigerians are aware that his claim to seeking a mandate in the court is only a pipe-dream as the entirety of his observations lack merit, are false and only a waste of time.”
The group noted that what the courts would eventually do, would be to stamp the authority of victory on President Buhari at the end of the day, adding that Atiku’s loss started at his polling unit where President Buhari beat him.
“The signs were very clear before the elections, during the elections, and with the eventual victory that President Buhari was the victor and had the popular appeal across the country.
“Atiku’s rejection by Nigerians started with his own household.”
