The ex-immediate governor of the state of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose, explained why he cannot congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at Wednesday’s presidential electoral court.
Latest Nigeria News previously reported that the judge, Mohammed Garba, ordered by the Court, had rejected Atiku and PDP’s request in its entirety.
The court ruled that Buhari was duly elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria during the presidential elections held on February 23, 2019.
The court ruled that the electronic transfer of results, which was the core of the opposition’s request, did not take place at any level.
Reacting, Fayose dissociated himself from any congratulatory message to President Buhari that could have been issued on his behalf.
According to him, he cannot authorize such a declaration because he believes in the PDP project and Atiku 2019
The former governor added that his PDP and Atiku will also appeal the ruling of the presidential electoral court.
On his Twitter page, Fayose wrote: “Nigerians should disregard any congratulatory message issued in my name on the outcome of the Presidential Election Judgment.
“My party has indicated its intention to appeal the judgment, and as a party man and believer in the PDP/ATIKU 2019 project, I can’t author such statement.”
