Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, will hold a press conference on Monday.

The PDP, in a post published on X on Saturday, said the press conference will take place at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

The party said the former vice-president will address “issues of serious importance to the nation”.

“The Presidential Candidate of our great Party, the @OfficialPDPNig, in the February 25, 2023 Presidential election and former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, GCON, Wazirin Adamawa, @atiku will address a crucial press conference on issues of serious importance to the nation,” the statement reads.

This press conference is coming after the supreme court judgment on the appeals filed by Atiku and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, over the election of President Bola Tinubu.

On Thursday, a seven-member panel of the apex court led by Inyang Okoro dismissed the cases of Atiku and Obi.

The supreme court affirmed the verdict of the presidential petition tribunal that upheld the victory of Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election.

The apex court also rejected the application of Atiku to file fresh evidence in his case against Tinubu.

The former vice-president had asked the court to admit evidence obtained from the academic records of Tinubu from the Chicago State University (CSU).

Abubakar had submitted that Tinubu’s academic records were fraught with discrepancies and forgeries which should have disqualified him from contesting the presidential election.

On October 5, the PDP presidential candidate hosted an international press conference in Abuja
