Atiku reacts to Supreme Court verdict

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Nigeria’s general election Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the dismissal of his appeals by the country’s highest court on Wednesday for lacking “merits”.

72-year-old Atiku, a former ally of the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, 76, described the judgment as a part of the “challenges” Nigeria must survive.

“While I believe that only God is infallible everywhere, and only Nigerians are infallible in our democracy, I must accept that the judicial route I chose to take, as a democrat, has come to a conclusion,” Atiku Abubakar wrote on Twitter, hours after the Supreme Court sealed his fate.
