Abbas made this known in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, December 17.

He added that the APC was not aware of such an arrangement and would pursue its case at the Supreme Court to a logical conclusion.

“There is nowhere such meeting was held with either Mr President or any leader of the party. President Bola Tinubu is a Democrat and strongly believes in the rule of law and the right thing to be done therefore will not be part of any arrangement or reconciliation to subvert justice and support people who have stolen votes or breach the electoral act to emerge as leaders.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Kano-based lawyer and professional negotiator and mediator, Umar Sa’ad Hassan, predicted the chances of Governor Yusuf at the Supreme Court.

Governor Yusuf approached the apex court after being sacked by the election tribunal and the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja.

Speaking on Governor Yusuf’s chances at the Supreme during an exclusive chat with Legit.ng, Umar said the NNPP governor has little chance of upturning the appellate court’s verdict.

A human rights lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, said Governor Yusuf and Governor Caleb Muftwang of Kano and Plateau states, respectively, have good ground to appeal their sack at the Supreme Court.

Effiong said the reason for sacking the governors was pre-election and party affair matters which the court has no jurisdiction over. The prominent lawyer said the decision of the governors to appeal the appellate court judgement is good even though he can’t predict the outcome of their appeal at the apex court.
