By Hannah Nathan, Warri

Ex-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, has indicated readiness to lead a coalition of opposition parties to remove the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, come 2027.

Atiku revealed this in a congratulatory message to governors of the PDP, whose elections were upheld by the Supreme Court on Friday.

In a statement signed by his Media Office in Abuja, Atiku described the decision of the court as good news for the people of Bauchi, Plateau, Cross River and Zamfara states, and indeed, a win for constitutional democracy.

Atiku reaffirmed his position that only a united opposition force can strengthen democracy in Nigeria.

He was quoted as saying, “I am as prepared as ever, to lead the charge, alongside all our leaders and Governors, for the good of our country.”

His words, “Where Justice is seen to have been substantially rendered, we, as patriots and citizens, will always applaud.”

Atiku equally said by the judgment of the Supreme Court, “there is a guaranteed continuation of the standards of good governance which the PDP has brought to the respective states.”

He called on the respective PDP governors, namely: Bala Mohammed of Bauchi, Dauda Lawal of Zamfara, Barr. Caleb Muftwang of Plateau and Pastor Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom to see their wins at the Supreme Court as an opportunity to consolidate and expand the scope of the good governance they have already established.
