A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has called on the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar to reject the results of the presidential election.
The official results of the election being announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) shows the APC are currently leading and poised to win.
Fani Kayode has now told Atiku to reject the results, issue an ultimatum to the federal government and prepare to form a government.
In a tweet on his verified handle, Fani-Kayode wrote:
“The election was a charade! @atiku should now brace up to defend the choice of millions of Nigerians who risked their lives on Saturday,defied tyranny and oppression and spoke through the ballot!He must reject the results and give the FG an ultimatum to declare the authentic results,failure of which he will form a Govt. and order civil disobedience throughout the nation!
“If this charade is allowed to stand,the country is finished! Then the authentic results collated by PDP from the 119,000 PUs must be released to the public and the int. community!
Some hours later, Fani-Kayode adviced Atiku to act within the law
“However before anything else I advise @Atiku to put his grievances in writing and forward it to the appropiate authorities and INEC for necessary action. I advise him to work WITHIN the law and to ensure that all peaceful and lawful means of retrieving his mandate are exhausted.”
The PDP also came out yesterday to announce that it would reject the result while Dele Momodu advised Atiku to concede defeat.
