Atiku’s lawyers are yet to get a copy of the judgment.

The lawyers are said to have formally applied to the court for certified true copies as of Friday.

The former Vice President and his team of lawyers have just 14 days to approach the Supreme Court with their appeal against the PEPC ruling.

Atiku spoke in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shaibu.

The statement said, “By not making available to Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, the certified true copies of the judgment of Wednesday for its filings at the Supreme Court, the Presidential Election Petition Court, is undermining Atiku’s and Nigerians quest for justice.”

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state has criticised Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for going to his Ibadan residence after his three-month medical vacation abroad.

It said the action of the governor amounted to disrespecting the people of Ondo state who it said have been praying for his recovery.

The Ondo PDP alleged that Akeredolu has relocated his government and state Assembly to his Ibadan residence.

The spokesman for the Ondo PDP, Kennedy Peretei, in a statement, also knocked the wife of the governor, Betty, for posting a picture of her husband in an aircraft with the caption “Homebound.”

Peretei said the First Lady assumed the role of Akeredolu’s media handlers as there was no official release about the governor’s return.
