SGF: We are not jittery — Atiku can go to court

Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), says President Muhammadu Buhari and his supporters are not worried about Atiku Abubakar’s plans to challenge the result of Saturday’s presidential election.

Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat Atiku, the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who had 11,262,978 votes.

Atiku has rejected the outcome of the election, describing it as the worst in Nigeria’s history.

However, Mustapha said there is nothing to worry about.

“We are not jittery at all because the process was open and transparent. It was a credible election and we will continue to savour the victory. In the process too, we will extend the hand of friendship for the purpose of nation building and reconciliation,” Boss, who is also from Adamawa state like Atiku, said.

“Our electoral act and the constitution have both provided a window for whoever is dissatisfied with the process of election to seek redress. That is the path and we will encourage them to go along that path.”
