AGM tasks Judiciary on restoration of people's mandate ~ Truth Reporters

The Atikulated Global Movement(AGM), encapsulating PDP Aspirants and Candidates across Nigeria, are calling on the Justices of the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court to rise up to the occasion by restoring the people’s confidence in the processes that were abused by INEC and consequently strengthening democracy in Nigeria.

In a statement made available by Hon. Dr. Olotu Akpodiete, AGM National Director of Social Media said that the judiciary remains the last hope of the masses and must live up to the expectation not to destroy the faith and hope which Nigerian youths have in them. 
He also said that hopes were however high that the jucidial outcomes of 2023 General Elections will make a difference, following innovations introduced by the Electoral Act, particularly the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS),  meant to authenticate every voter. 

According to the Chairman of INEC, BVAS was intended to achieve two objectives, namely: accreditation and authentication of intending voters and uploading polling unit results to the INEC Result Viewing Portal (IReV) in real-time.
Regardless of this feat, complaints of irregularities marred the last elections. The most controversial issue was INEC’s failure to instantaneously upload the presidential results on IReV as promised, citing acceptable and unsubstantiated technical hitches as their challenge. 

AGM urges the apex court to be brave like the Supreme Court of Kenya, which can annul the election if it’s deeply flawed or fraudulent and reminded the members of the judiciary to remember that the destiny of the country is in their hands. 

AGM insists  that the declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election was invalid by reason of non-compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act. Atiku, through his team of lawyers led by Mr Joe Kyari Gadzama, SAN, further argued that Tinubu’s election was invalid because of corrupt practices.
The group had prayed the court to declare Atiku the presidential election winner, having secured the second-highest number of lawful votes cast.
