PDP To Begin Seven-Day Fast For Atiku’s Election Petition Victory
The National Chapel of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has declared a one-week prayer and fasting for its February 25 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to come out victorious at the Presidential Election Tribunal which began days ago.
The prayers which would begin Thursday, May 18 and end Wednesday, May 24, would hold at the Party’s national chapel, PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Wuse Zone 5, Abuja, 12 pm daily.
Recall that the Presidential Election Petition Court had adjourned Atiku’s case to May 18 for the continuation of the prehearing of the petition by the PDP and Atiku against president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In the petition marked CA/PEPC/05/2023, the PDP and Atiku are challenging the declaration of Tinubu as the president-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The prehearing of the petition was taken first on Thursday morning after counsel for Atiku and PDP, Chris Uche, indicated an interest in the matter.
The fast, announced by Boni Haruna, the Chairman of the PDP Christian Religious Body, was tagged, ‘At the Supreme Court of Heaven with Chief Justice of the Universe’.
Haruna noted that the prayer was to “denounce the Independent National Electoral Commission’s president-select and rescue and recover PDP for Nigeria.”
