Atiku, Obi’s petitions ‘terribly hopeless’ – APC Secretary, Basiru

The National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Ajibola Basiru has claimed that the petitions challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the just concluded presidential election are “terribly hopeless”.

Recall that Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, are challenging Tinubu’s victory in the court.

However, Basiru was unequivocal in his dismissal of the cases.

He spoke on Sunday while fielding questions on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

Basiru dismissed speculation that the APC is gearing up for a rerun election.

“From my knowledge of electoral law in Nigeria and having read the petitions and also being part of the proceedings, I would say that all the petitions against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s election are hopeless and nobody needs to even waste time in dismissing same.

“They are hopeless petitions, terribly hopeless,” he boasted.
