The Peoples Democratic Party says its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will uphold the rule of law and not disobey court orders if elected as President in next year’s general elections.
The spokesperson for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, told Saturday PUNCH that Atiku’s political trajectory had a lot to do with obedience to court orders, saying if elected President, his administration would spare no effort in strengthening the rule of law regardless of whether court rulings favour his administration or not.
“Atiku Abubakar is a symbol of the rule of law. He fought all his battles through the courts. When a man of his stature explored the law courts on all issues that concerned him, you can be sure that when he is sworn in on May 29, 2023 as the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, he will stand on the side of the law.
“Atiku will also work with the National Assembly and the judiciary to improve on our jurisprudence,” Ologbondiyan told our correspondent during a phone interview.
