The political camp of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has alleged lapses in Thursday’s presidential primaries of the PDP, quoting his agents at the collation of the result. The agents, it said, therefore “declined to sign the final result on account” of the lapses, with former President Olusegun Obasanjo taunting his former deputy yesterday just hours after the PDP national convention. “I am laughing, Chief Obasanjo said, as reporters sought his reaction to the outcome of the primaries.

It was variation of the “I dey laugh” statement he made on November 25 last year shortly after Alhaji Atiku emerged as the Northern consensus candidate. Already, Nigerians have been congratulating the President on his victory while others have been giving their opinions on the event.

 

Atiku committed to democratic process, rule of law

The Atiku Campaign Organisation in a statement in Abuja said: “Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has assured that he remains irrevocably committed to democratic Nigeria based on democratic process. “The former Vice President is committed to entrenching democratic governance, rule of law and democratic process.The former Vice President has commenced consultations with his supporters and other stakeholders and will be making a pronouncement on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential primaries.

“Part of his consultations will include briefing by his agents who declined to sign the final results on account of lapses observed during the Thursday primaries. “The outcome of these consultations will determine the next line of action of the former Vice President. “Atiku, however, thanked the PDP for the platform it has provided for the contest, delegates, supporters, campaign staff and well wishers for their support so far.

“The Atiku Campaign Organisation assured all of them that the former Vice President still has a lot to offer and that this is not the time to write him off. *I’m laughing — Obasanjo However, Chief Obasanjo when asked to comment on the outcome of the PDP presidential primaries said what happened made him laugh.

Asked as he made to enter his car with number plate Abuja AZ 988 KWL whether he was still laughing, he said, “I am laughing.” He quickly entered the car and was driven away. The PDP BoT Chairman had on Thursday November 25, 2010 laughed over the emergence of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as the Northern consensus candidate.

He repeated same on January 2, 2011 on a visit to the National Secretariat of the party.
