Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, says he has confidence in God.

He made the statement while denying threatening to lead a street protest in the event that the election petition tribunal ruled against him and his party.

A tweet from one YouthSupportPDP had quoted Atiku as saying: “My Server Results Are Authentic and If judges frustrate the Justice we will take over the street. I will lead all Nigerians in a massive protest that mankind have never witness before.”

But the presidential candidate blamed the statement on “mischief makers who are out to mar my pro-democratic record”, and lay the groundwork on false charges against him.

“I wish to emphatically state that such a statement did not emanate from Atiku Abubakar or his privies. It is the work of mischief makers who want to mar his spotless pro-democratic record and lay the groundwork for their threatened actions against him on false charges of being a threat to national security,” Atiku said in a statement Paul Ibe, his spokesman, issued on his behalf.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Atiku Abubakar believes in the Rule of Law and in the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. In his almost four decades in politics, he has never taken action or spoken words against democracy and will not start now.

“Atiku and his team have confidence in God and thus call on those bent on mischief to have the fear of God and retrace their steps. Democracy has come to stay in Nigeria. The culture of fear being created now cannot rein in our democracy. Nigeria and Nigerians have a consistent history of outlasting tyranny and will continue to do so by the grace of God.”
