Speaking via a statement in Lagos, Onitiri argued that millions of Nigerians are dying of hunger and starvation while Atiku was busy with his result saga.

He insisted that the PDP flag bearer was being arrogant considering what Nigerians are presently going through.

The activist advised Atiku to wait for the outcome of his Supreme Court appeal instead of destroying the country’s image.

The statement read in part: “Atiku must be told in clear language that it is an act of arrogance, insensitivity, and a disservice to the entire Nigerians to continue to heat up the political space in view of the present daunting economic, hunger, insecurity, and other social challenges facing the nation, to which the Federal and state governments are trying assiduously to find solutions.

“Nobody is begrudging or begging Atiku not to pursue his presidential election petition against President Tinubu at the apex court. But it is not acceptable to Nigerians, especially the democrats for him to indulge in self-help by trying the case on pages of newspapers, social media, and TV programmes.

“If Atiku believes he has a good case, he should wait for the outcome of his appeal before the Supreme Court, instead of disgracing the entire Nigerians before the outside world and denting the nation’s image.”
