Atiku Abubakar, Former Vice President

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party  (PDP), has attributed the low turn-out of voters in the governorship and state assembly elections to alleged rigging of the presidential poll.

Atiku spoke after voting at the Ajiya polling unit 02, Gwadabawa ward of Yola north local government of Adamawa state.

“There is low voter turn out and I believe it’s because of the last election which was marred by a lot of irregularities,” he said.

Atiku said the involvement of the military in the election is unconstitutional, urging the electorate to be law-abiding.

Speaking on his loss, Atiku said he was committed to challenging the result f the election in court.

He called on his supporters to remain calm and await the outcome of the legal action.
