Atiku Abubakar finished second at the polls behind Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) stated this during a press briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

According to Atiku Abubakar, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ran a grossly flawed poll that was one of the worst in the democratic era.

He described the country’s apex court as one that he has no confidence will give him justice.

The Adamawa-born politician said all through the court process, the courts ruled against him.

“Do you think it’s possible today to do it?” he posed.

“I got judgment at the trial court, I got judgment at the appeal Court and I got judgment at the Supreme Court, so, I cannot say whether it’s the same Supreme Court until I test them,” he said.
