*Gadzama heads team
Chuks Okocha in Abuja
Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has inaugurated a legal team of 19 SANs to prosecute his election petition against the results of the presidential election of February 25 and reclaim what he claims to be his mandate.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as the winner of the election and President elect.
The legal team headed by J.K.Gadzama is to prosecute the election petition case for Atiku.
Other membes of the legal team include Chief Chris Uche (SAN), Mr. Paul Usoro (SAN), Tayo Jegede (SAN), Ken Mozia (SAN), Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Mahmood Magaji (SAN), Joe Abraham (SAN), Mr Chukwuma Umeh (SAN), Dr. Garba Tetengi (SAN) and Chief Emeka Etiaba (SAN).
Others are Chief Goddy Uche (SAN), Prof. Maxwell Gidado (SAN); the National Legal Adviser of the PDP, A. K. Ajibade (SAN), Mr. O. M. Atoyebi, (SAN), Mrs. Nella Rabana (SAN), Paul Ogbole (SAN), Nuremi Jimoh (SAN), and Abdul Ibrahim (SAN).
The PDP presidential candidate, while inaugurating the legal team at his campaign headquarters in Abuja, charged members to establish the claim of illegality in the February 25 presidential election and reclaim the mandate of the Nigerian people.
Atiku told the team that apart from reclaiming the mandate from those who perpetrated the electoral heist that was not a reflection of the will of Nigerians, the legal team should also use the opportunity of the trial to strengthen constitutional democracy in the country.
Addressing the team headed by Chief Gadzama, SAN, at the conference room of his office at the campaign headquarters, Atiku said it was imperative that they worked assiduously in reclaiming the mandate, not necessarily because of him and the PDP, but to strengthen democracy and the electoral process and for generations unborn.
