Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president in 2023, asserts that he will successfully challenge President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his authority in a court of law.
Atiku added that Tinubu’s government was only in place temporarily and that it had been stolen due to purported electoral irregularities.
The former Vice President said this during a PDP stakeholders’ meeting for elected officials of the party in Bauchi State on Saturday.
At the meeting, PDP urged its members in the National Assembly not to be “rubber stamp members of the National Assembly.”
According to Atiku, “You are there to serve as a formidable opposition to this temporary administration.
“Based on the results announced by the INEC and pending the determination of electoral challenges in the court, our members-elect are not the majority in the National Assembly.
“So, for the time being, they have to prepare to work as an effective, constructive opposition while also preparing for possible roles of the majority party when the cases are resolved. A Government in-waiting, so to speak.”
