Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger State, has said the decision by the Presidential candidate, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, to go to court was just a waste of resources.
“it’s not unusual, when you lose elections, you go to court for so many reasons. It could be that you think you won or it could be that someone is telling you that you’ve won or it could be that someone is telling you some miracles can happen, he said at the Villa Thursday after a meeting with President Buhari.
“It could also be that someone wants to get money off you. So there is no reason why after a free and fair elections have been conducted and it’s clear in the eyes of the world, one still believes that there is a shoddy dealing.
“Anyone who feels dissatisfied is free to approach a court of law. It’s a free world, everyone is entitled to his opinion. But honestly, from what I saw in Niger, this election has been the fairest election we have conducted so far.”
According to Niger governor, it was possible that some persons want to rip off Abubakar, by encouraging him to challenge the outcome of the presidential election in court.
