The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has congratulated governors whose elections were upheld by the Supreme Court on Friday.
The apex court upheld the elections of opposition parties governors, Bala Mohammed (Bauchi), Dauda Lawal (Zamfara), Caleb Muftwang (Plateau), and Abba Yusuff (Kano).
The former vice president who congratulated the governors in a statement by his media office, on Friday also declared readiness to lead a coalition of opposition political parties against the All Progressives Congress.
He said, “We have all seen how the APC is increasingly turning Nigeria into a dictatorship of one party. If we don’t come together to challenge what the ruling party is trying to create, our democracy will suffer for it, and the consequences of it will affect the generations yet unborn.”
“There is a guaranteed continuation of the standards of good governance which the PDP has brought to the respective states.”
