The National vice-chairman North East of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mustapha Salihu said that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the last general elections, Atiku Abubakar and his party were deceived by people who told them that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had a server where it transmitted results of the presidential Poll.
Salihu who addressed newsmen in Abuja on Friday at the national secretariat of the APC after a meeting of the Adamawa state stakeholders said the Judges were right to dismiss Atiku’s petition because it lacked substance.
He said, “Some people jobbed them, took their money telling them there was INEC server somewhere when that was not true and so, they could not establish a prima facie case.
“Even though their lawyer did a good job trying to present their case, it was dismissed because there was no substance. This is a victory for Nigeria and the Nigerian people and not for APC alone. We have now done away with the distractions and this government is going to deliver the dividends of democracy and the next level is assured.
“The outcome of the tribunal was something that was expected. All the cases canvassed by the opposition are frivolous because you cannot say that an army general who serves as military commanding officer, Head of State, Minister and President of Federal Republic of Nigeria for four years does not have credentials.”
