Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate in the February 23, 2019 election, lack common sense and should apologise to Nigerians for wasting their time.
He said this on Thursday in a statement issued by Segun Adeyemi, his media aide.
He urged the party and its candidate to jettison their plan of heading to the Supreme Court and join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari to make the country better.
“Nigerians are tired of this orchestrated distraction, and will rather wish that the opposition, having lost at the polls and in court, will now join hands with the government to move Nigeria to the next level,” he said.
“This is more so that the judgment validating the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari was unanimous that the petition lacked merit, that the petitioners failed to prove any of the grounds upon which their case was anchored and that President Buhari is eminently qualified to contest the poll.
“It is intriguing that a party that trumpets the rule of law at every turn will present, in open court, evidence it claimed to have obtained by hacking into a supposed INEC server.
“Don’t they realise this is a criminal act for which they are liable? Instead of threatening to head to the Supreme Court, driven more by ego than common sense, they should be sorry for allowing desperation to overwhelm their sense of reasoning. Enough is enough.”
