In an explosive interview broadcast on Wednesday, Mr. Segun Showunmi, the official Spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar, said he was ready to stand with the former Vice President ‘to death‘ as he reclaims his ‘stolen mandate‘ from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku, who was the candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party in the 2019 presidential election in Nigeria, claimed that his victory was stolen by Buhari.
He has gone to court to reclaim his mandate where he would be presenting evidences to back his case.
It might have been in anticipation of that court case which is starting today that Mr. Showunmi granted his interview broadcast live on his twitter handle.
Showunmi said he was ready to take a bullet for Atiku because he is the messiah Nigerians need at the moment to fix a country on the brink of economic ruins and chaos.
Just like those before him liberated Nigeria from the stranglehold of slavery, colonialism and dictatorship, it’s Atiku’s time to fix Nigeria, he said.
Showunmi said he hoped the court would deliver justice and declare Atiku the duly elected President of Nigeria.
“On this day, oh Allah we commence the legal battle of the 2019 Presidential Election of your country Nigeria. Surely, you are Lord of the worlds and the best to depose of the Affairs, for You oh Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise!,” he later tweeted, adding that “Grant our Lawyers wisdom, let Justice Be Done; oh You Who will Judge All of your creation on the day of Judgement!”
Atiku also tweeted a picture of himself praying and saying that Nigeria will overcome its challenges through “prayer, fasting, and justice“.
