Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, has denied issuing a statement to validate the 2023 presidential election outcome while calling the purported statement ‘ fake news’.

Atiku was the PDP presidential candidate in the presidential election held on February 25.

Pulsenews learned that Atiku in a statement on Saturday urged   Nigerians to reject the  fake news being circulated by  those he described as mischief makers.

Atiku added that  he had since instructed his lawyers to question  the election outcome which he described as the worst in Nigeria’s political history.

‘I have been notified of a fake press release attributed to me and purportedly giving legitimacy to the widely rigged presidential election of February 25.

The so-called press release did not emanate from me or my office, and it should be treated with repudiation,  it is untrue and deliberately contrived by those who illegally appropriated the mandate of the Nigerian people.

For the avoidance of any doubt, I wish to state categorically that my lawyers still have my unflinching mandate to challenge the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.

I join other lovers of democracy in Nigeria and friends of our great country in the outright rejection of the pre-determined outcome of the February 25 election. I shall continue to challenge the legality of that election, alongside my party, the Peoples Democratic Party.

The decision to challenge the sham election of February 25, the worst election in our democratic history, is not predicated on my personal interest but for the interest of Nigeria and its people. It is aimed at deepening democracy and ensuring that we do not confer legitimacy to an outcome of illegitimacy.

My commitment to the democratic struggle in Nigeria is beyond an election season’ he said.
