Addressing the team, headed by Joe Gadzama (SAN), at the conference room of his campaign headquarters, Atiku told the senior lawyers that apart from reclaiming the mandate from “those who undertook the electoral heist that was not a reflection of the will of Nigerians,” the legal team should also use the opportunity of the trial to strengthen constitutional democracy in the country.

“It is imperative that you work assiduously in reclaiming the mandate, not necessarily because of me and the PDP, but to strengthen democracy and the electoral process and for generations unborn,” he added.

Members of the team include Chris Uche (SAN), Paul Usoro (SAN), Tayo Jegede (SAN), Ken Mozia (SAN), Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Mahmood Magaji (SAN), Joe Abraham (SAN), Chukwuma Umeh (SAN), Garba Tetengi (SAN) and Emeka Etiaba (SAN).

Others are Goddy Uche (SAN), Prof. Maxwell Gidado (SAN); National Legal Adviser of the PDP, A. K. Ajibade (SAN), O. M. Atoyebi (SAN), Nella Rabana (SAN), Paul Ogbole (SAN), Nuremi Jimoh (SAN) and Abdul Ibrahim (SAN).
