The legal team is headed by Livy Uzoukwu, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), according to results declared by INEC, defeated Abubakar with over three million votes.

Atiku had described the election as the worst in Nigeria’s history while vowing to seek redress in court.

“I have just inaugurated my legal team and charged them with the responsibility of ensuring that our stolen mandate is retrieved”, Ibe quoted Atiku to have said.

“I am encouraged by the presence of fearless men and women of the Bench. The judiciary which had in the past discharged itself ably is once again being called upon to deliver judgement on this matter that will be untainted by lucre and uncowed by the threat of immoral power.”
