….Atiku free to challenge president’s victory in court -Niger gov.

By Lawrence Olaoye

Niger state governor, Abubakar Bello, has said that the candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was free to challenge the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the recent presidential election in the court of law.
Bello said this in an interaction with newsmen after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday at the Presidential Villa.
Asked to comment on Atiku’s resolve to challenge Buhari, he said “It’s not unusual, when you lose elections, you go to court for so many reasons. It could be that you think you won or it could be that someone is telling you that you’ve won or it could be that someone is telling you some miracles can happen. It could also be that someone wants to get money off you. So there is no reason why after a free and fair elections been conducted and it’s clear in the eyes of the world one still believes that there are shoddy dealings, anyone who feels dissatisfied is free to approach a court of law. It’s a free world, everyone is entitle to his opinion. But honestly, from what I saw in Niger, this election has been the most fairest election we have conducted so far.”
The governor who came to congratulate the President on his re-election said he would continue to deliver good governance to the Nigerlite who voted for him to continue in office for a second term.
Asked to comment on the series of inconclusive elections, Bello said “It’s not unusual, when you loss elections, you go to court for so many reasons. It could be that you think you won or it could be that someone is telling you that you’ve won or it could be that someone is telling you some miracles can happen. It could also be that someone wants to get money off you. So there is no reason why after a free and fair elections been conducted and it’s clear in the eyes of the world one still believes that there is as shoddy dealings. Anyone who feels dissatisfied is free to approach a court of law. It’s a free world, everyone is entitle to his opinion. But honestly, from what I saw in Niger, this election has been the most fairest election we have conducted so far.”
Meanwhile, Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki who also came to congratulate the President has assured that his administration would enhance the security in his state.
The Edo governor said as the only surviving APC governor in the South-south and South-east regions in the country, he discussed issues pertaining to the economic development and security of the regions with the President.
Asked what his administration was doing to curb insecurity in northern parts of his state, Obaseki said “Security in that part of the state has been a concern to us and fortunately the Police stepped up investigation of the killings in Afuze Police Station last week and I am happy to report that the culprits have been found. We are still investigating to see how this activity is related to such similar activities that we witnessed in that part of the state over the past one year.”
