Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria’s ex-Vice President and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 2019 general election has indicated his intention to approach the appellate court for the review of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) judgment which upheld the election of President Mohammadu Buhari, 

Atiku
Abubakar, in his first reaction to the judgment of the PEPT on Friday, expressed the belief that he will get justice in his suit against President Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
In his verified Twitter handle @atiku on Friday, the ex-vice president had tweeted:
“I note the immense outpouring of goodwill from ordinary Nigerians in every nook and cranny of Nigeria and from all regions, religions and relationships.
“Once again I thank you all for your support.
“I also thank the governors elected on the platform of my party, the
Peoples Democratic Party, as well as the National Executive Committee, for their unanimous and unambiguous support for the judicial phase of this struggle, especially after it was announced that we would go on to appeal.
“I urge all Nigerians to continue their support for this recourse to constitutional order via the courts.
“Even if there is little or nothing you can do to ensure that justice is done in Nigeria, just believe that it will happen.
“Let us never underestimate the effect of our belief.
“Finally, I say to all concerned, that we will all die and give account of our lives to our Creator.
“Thank you and may God bless Nigeria.”
Atiku had sued Buhari, INEC and APC in the aftermath of Buhari’s declaration as the winner of the presidential election, seeking to upturn the victory and the declaration that he (Atiku) was the winner.
