Former Vice-Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has explained why former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the opposition party are challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the February 23 election. 

In a statement on Tuesday, Obi believed that the Atiku and the PDP approached the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to grow the nation’s democracy.

He commended the former vice president and the party for choosing what he described as the most civilised manner to seek redress.

According to the former Anambra State governor, Atiku is always standing for democracy while the PDP has nurtured it for 16 years and conducted one of the most credible elections it lost and seamlessly handed over.

He asked the lovers of democracy and justice to be happy with the development, noting that it would have been suicidal to ignore “the monumental fraud” and let it go unchallenged.

“By challenging the fraud, we have decided to deepen democracy the civilised way as a party and a people that believe in the rule of law,” the statement said.

Obi called on all Democrats to remain focused, stressing that victory would always come the way of those who seek justice and fairness.
