President Buhari has said that the legal challenge against his re-election is not surprising.

The President made the statement while addressing newsmen shortly after he and his wife cast their vote in Daura, Katsina state, earlier today. INEC had on Wednesday, February 27 declared Buhari winner of the 2019 presidential election.

Buhari won the elections in 19 states, polling a total of 15,191,847 votes, he defeated 72 other candidates including his closest opponent, Atiku Abubakar, who polled a total of  11, 255,978 votes and won in 17 states and the FCT.

In reaction to the defeat, Atiku put together a legal team to challenge the verdict. The PDP presidential candidate sought redress at a tribunal, demanding that materials used for the Feb. 23 presidential election be inspected by his legal team.

However, President Buhari in his reaction to Atiku and the PDP’s move told newsmen on Saturday that he expected the challenge beforehand. Regarding fears of a possible eruption of violence during the governorship elections, President Buhari said he is leaving the situation to the law enforcement agencies.

He said the police have identified all flashpoints and have made arrangements to counter them.
