Ex US Ambassador To Nigeria Says Atiku Doesn’t Stand A Chance Of Winning Buhari At The Tribunal

Former United States Ambassador to Nigeria, John Campbell, said Atiku Abubakar doesn’t stand a chance of winning at the presidential election petition tribunal considering the wide margin between him and President Muhammadu Buhari.

At last month’s presidential poll, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chaired by Professor Mahmood Yakubu, announced that President Buhari polled APC 15,191,847 votes to defeat his closest challenger, Atiku, who polled PDP 11,262,978 votes.

In his write-up, which was published on the official website of Council of Foreign Relations, Campbell said the margin was huge for the court to overturn.

Campbell, who also served as US Department of State foreign service officer from 1975 to 2007, further said the election was “marred by historically low turnout and credible allegations of rigging”.
