Buhari, APC are begging Atiku to drop court case – Galadima
A former ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, Buba Galadima has alleged that President Muhammadu and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), have heavily paid some people to beg Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 23 elections, not to challenge the result in court.
Galadima made this known when he featured on Sunrise Daily, a programme on Channels Television on Wednesday.

 Shocking speech: With the manner the PDP was brandishing figures allegedly obtained from INEC’s server, it would be necessary for INEC and security agencies to be on alert
“Records available to us show that our candidates had won this election and that is why we have gone to court.
“APC have insisted, demonstrated and sponsored some highly placed Nigerians, paid them handsomely to appeal to Atiku not to go to court.
“What is their business? Didn’t their candidate in 2003, 2007 and 2011 go to court to challenge results? Did he ever congratulate those that were declared to have won those elections?” he queried.
Recall that there have been earlier reports that Atiku has claimed that he defeated President Buhari by about 1.6million votes.

Okorocha sues INEC, prays court to force INEC to issue him Certificate of Return  
This was contained in the petition he filed before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja on Monday, to challenge Buhari’s victory.
