— Human rights lawyer, Falana says Atiku is yet to defend a statement credited to him in which he promised to enrich his friends if elected.
— I would have been surprised if Atiku had won, Falana added.
As the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, heads to court to challenge the result of the presidential poll, human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has said his chances of winning in court are very slim.
Falana, during a programme on Channels TV, said he would have been surprised if the PDP presidential candidate had won the election.
“I would have been surprised if Atiku had won. Atiku’s emergence has negative implications. He will have to defend many negative comments by Obasanjo.
“He is under investigation by the United States Government. He never came out to deny the representation that he will enrich his friends.
Atiku was going to sell the NNPC to his friends.” When asked if he thinks Atiku could win against President Buhari in court, Falana said: “Atiku’s chances in court are very tough.”
