The attention of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has been brought to a Press Statement issued by the media aide to Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). According to the statement, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its government are being accused of attempting to exert undue influence on the judiciary to sway the outcomes of pending court cases. However, it is important to note that Atiku Abubakar and his associates have not provided any substantial evidence to support these allegations, rendering them baseless and mischievous.
In all honesty, the APC finds no reason to react to Atiku Abubakar’s statement, as it lacks credibility and coherence. It appears to be mere unfounded claims aimed at creating an excuse to mask the potential setback he may face in court due to his inability to present a valid case supporting his previous assertion of winning the last Presidential Election.
The victory in the election was convincingly secured by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and our Party. We maintain full confidence in the integrity of our judiciary to administer electoral justice in adherence to our Constitution and all relevant laws.

*APC TO ATIKU ABUBAKAR – NO PLOT TO UNDERMINE JUDICIARY*
Our attention has been drawn to a Press Statement by a media aide to Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The statement alleges that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its government are engaged in a plot to intimidate members of the judiciary towards unduly influencing the outcome of pending cases before the court. Atiku Abubakar and his minions offered no evidence to support their wild, hollow, and mischievous allegations.
Quite frankly, there is nothing in Atiku Abubakar’s statement, that is worth a reaction from the APC. It is just arrant nonsense, totally lacking in substance and cogency. Its only imaginable purpose is a childish attempt to float an alibi to deflect the shame of a highly probable defeat in court, having miserably failed to make out a credible case to justify his bogus claim that he won the last Presidential Election.
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and our Party won the election convincingly. We have full faith and confidence in our courts to dispense electoral justice in accordance with our Constitution and all applicable laws.
