Human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr Femi Falana, has said that Atiku Abubakar may not be able to successfully challenge President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in court.
He also said that he would be surprise if the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had won.
He said this during an interview on Hard Copy, a Channels Television programme which airs on Fridays and monitored by our correspondent.
He said that Atiku’s emergence has negative implications, adding that his chances of winning in court are “tough”.
He said: “I would have been surprised if Atiku had won. Atiku’s emergence has negative implications. He will have to defend many negative comments by Obasanjo.
“He is under investigation by the United States Government. He never came out to deny the representation that he will enrich his friends. Atiku was going to sell the NNPC to his friends.”
Asked if Atiku could win in court, Falana said: “Atiku’s chances in court are very tough.”
