The National Chairman of the ruling All progressives Congress (APC) has applauded Thursday’s Supreme Court judgment which upheld the victory of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.
Ganduje, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Edwin Olofu, said the judgment had laid to rest all claims by the opposition political parties that the votes at the presidential poll were manipulated in favour of President Tinubu.
He said that the Supreme Court verdict would now pave way for President Tinubu to concentrate on implementing the Renewed Hope mandate of the APC for the benefit of Nigerians.
He called on the presidential candidates of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi, to bury their hatchets and join hands with President Tinubu to reposition the country towards sustainable growth and development.
“Nigeria belongs to all of us, it is our responsibility as patriots to pool our resources together to move the country forward.I congratulate both Atiku and Obi for their dogged fight in extending the frontiers of our democracy and law.
“This is democracy. Tinubu’s victory is another victory for democratic rule in the country. There is still room for both Obi and Atiku to actualize their presidential aspiration after the second term tenure of President Tinubu in 2031,” the APC national chairman said.
Ganduje called on Nigerians, irrespective of political leanings, to rally round the President to ensure that he delivers more dividends of democracy and move the country on the path of sustainable progress.
