Why Atiku can’t prove his case in court – Agbakoba 0 0
     
   
NEW -  Why Atiku can’t prove his case in court – Agbakoba
#1
    Olisa Agbakoba, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, has
explained why the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and
its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, may
lose in court.
Agbakoba, a former President of the Nigerian Bar
Association, NBA, said at this stage, Atiku should assume
the role of a statesman instead of going to court.
The senior lawyer pointed out that it would be difficult
for the PDP to prove that the votes in the South-East
were reduced and to identify whether INEC or APC was
responsible.
In an interview with Vanguard, Agbakoba insisted that
there is a lot Atiku can do even though he is not the
President instead of going to court.
He explained, “I feel that going to court will not
necessarily prove that the election was marred by
massive irregularities.
“I feel that the stage Abubakar Atiku has attained now is
a national one. And having garnered 12 million votes, I
feel that, against all odds, the side of irregularities that
came out of the election predicts more to the weak
electoral processes that we have.
“I should advise that former Vice President Atiku
Abubakar moves into the position of a statesman and
leaves a legacy by assisting the civil society, the small
parties and the PDP in reconstructing Nigeria on the
question of a strong electoral system and the question
of a strong legal system.
“There’s a lot Atiku can do even though he is not the
President.
“At 74, 73 or 72 years of age, I feel that this should be
his last chance. And more so, what will the petition’s
outcome be?
“Petitions are based on two types of issues. One is the
electoral malpractice.
“The other is a tactical issue. From what I can see, the
petition will be based on electoral malpractice.
“This is an extremely difficult thing to say. How do you
prove that the votes in the South-East were reduced and
who is responsible? INEC? APC?
“I would rather say Atiku should maintain the status quo
of a statesman than descend into the arena of the court
of law. The court of law is too small today.
“The national court is a bigger space that I personally
feel Atiku should be favoured.
“And given the fact that it is not as strong as it should, I
think Atiku should play a very strong role to build a
political structure that will solve issues.
“Even the whole party, PDP, needs to reform, rebrand
and reposition for 2023, so that a young vibrant
President from the North or South or from anywhere in
the country can be promoted.
“I think that should be Atiku’s legacy, and not to contest
the outcome of the election in court.”
