Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, has reacted to the Supreme Court’s dismissal of his party’s suit seeking disqualification of Kashim Shettima as the vice-presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 poll.

Shettima was the running mate to Bola Ahmed Tinubu who was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on March 1.

But Justice Adamu Jauro, the lead judge, declared that PDP had no business interfering with the internal affairs of another political party.
