Atiku was deceived into believing that there is a server somewhere – APC chieftain
Mustapha Salihu, the National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), alleges that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was only deceiving former Vice President Atiku Abubakar into believing that the result of the February 23, 2019, presidential poll was transmitted to a server.
“Nobody uses server today. You don’t have one big box that is called server anywhere. They (Atiku and the PDP) were ‘jobbed’. Some people told them there was a server, took money and they filed a case based on that. Although their lawyers did a good job in presenting the case, it was dismissed. The victory is not for the APC alone but for all Nigerians. Now that we have done away with the distraction ‘the next level’ is assured,” he said.
