Atiku, Ganduje meet 24 hours after Supreme Court verdict [PHOTOS]

Twenty-four hours after the Supreme Court ended the dispute over the 2023 Presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), met at a social function.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared President Bola Tinubu the election winner.

Still, Atiku challenged his victory in court, losing at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal and the apex court.

Reacting to the verdict, Ganduje had taunted Atiku, saying he would wait till 2031 as Tinubu, who is yet to spend a year in office, would do two terms.

But Ganduje and Atiku set aside their political differences at the wedding of the daughter of Ambassador Iliya Damagum, acting National Chairman of the PDP, which was held at the National Mosque in Abuja on Friday.

Photos which surfaced on the internet showed that the duo who sat next to each other shook hands as chieftains of the two leading parties who witnessed the occasion exchanged pleasantries.

Atiku will address the press on Monday after the Supre Court verdict, which the PDP has already criticised.
