Femi Falana revealed this on Hard Copy, a Channels Television programme which airs on Fridays.
“I would have been surprised if Atiku had won. Atiku’s emergence has negative implications. He will have to defend many negative comments by Obasanjo.
“He is under investigation by the United States Government. He never came out to deny the representation that he will enrich his friends. Atiku was going to sell the NNPC to his friends.”
Asked if Atiku could win in court, Falana said: “Atiku’s chances in court are very tough.”
