Atiku wants all of you to believe they’re begging him not to go to court so that he can come and say he just complied. Lmao! No Sir! PLEASE!! GO TO COURT! #AtikuGoToCourt.

For a minute I lost faith in politics and in Nigeria.
Then @atiku decided to go to court and I realized what I’d forgotten:
Democracy is a process, not an event.
