The complaints of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over the conduct of the recently held 2019 presidential election has been submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abdulsalami Abubakar, Chairman of the National Peace Committee (NPC), has said.
Abubakar, a former military head of state, disclosed this to journalists after meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday.
The meeting, it was learnt, took place at the president’s office in the villa around 3 pm.
Also in attendance apart from President Buhari and Abubakar were Matthew Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto diocese and Convener of NPC; and John Cardinal Onaiyekan, Catholic Archbishop of Abuja diocese.
The PDP presidential candidate had, in a statement hours after the declaration of the result, announced that he rejected the proclamation of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), citing “manifest and premediated inadequacies” that occurred during the election.
Atiku had threatened to seek legal redress at the tribunal, saying the PDP had strong evidence to show that the election was rigged.
