The group in a statement by its National President and   Vice President,  Collins Oniobo and   Chukwuma Odikaesieme respectively, said; “we are  solidly behind Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the PDP. We are resolute and we believe that the Judiciary will redeem it’s image and act as the last hope of the common man by ensuring Atiku and the PDP are not denied justice.

“We want to use this medium, therefore, to implore the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC and the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC,  not to temper with the case at the Presidential election petition tribunal. The government of the day has a duty to protect the integrity of the Judiciary by ensuring that none of its officials, party members or supporters influence the adjudication process.

“In the same vein, the judiciary must not allow itself, as an arm of government, to be used or cajoled into delivering   judgement that will not favour the interest of majority of Nigerians. In this instance the interest of Nigerians is that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar be declared winner of the February Presidential election.”

“We also urge the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to redeem his image and that of the Commission by being truthful, nonpartisan and should provide all necessary piece of information to the tribunal.

“Our Country is in a state of comatose. We must bring back the glory of Nigeria. Look at the level of insecurity, joblessness and decadence of public institutions. We don’t need a leader with only socialist ideology. At this time of our national life, we need capitalists who will put in their resources to move this country forward.”
