Buhari Hails Supreme Court Judgment

Former president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has hailed the judgment of the Supreme Court that dismissed the petitions filed against President Bola Tinubu’s election.

Buhari said the judgment is a relief to him and many Nigerians.

The apex court on Thursday dismissed the petitions filed by the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party’s Peter Obi.

The Justice John Okoro-led seven-man panel ruled that the petitions by Abubakar and Obi lacked merit.

Buhari urged Atiku Abubakar, and Peter Obi to take the hand of fellowship extended to them by the Tinubu-led administration.

The former President stated this in a post on X (formerly Twitter) by his former Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Thursday.

Shehu stated, “The former President repeated what he said on the earlier 6 September verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court which affirmed President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory that the decision is “a reaffirmation of the will of the majority of the people against the determined will of a hard-fighting minority.”

Buhari stated that the opposition (both Abubakar and Obi) had fought a “good fight,” adding that they should “take the hand of fellowship extended” by the Tinubu-led administration.

“Now that we have arrived at the last bus stop, after a tortuous 8-months of expensive legal journey, the nation deserves a break. The opposition has fought a good fight. Having now exhausted their rights as constitutionally allowed, they should take the hand of fellowship extended by the Tinubu/Shettima APC government.

“Let them allow the government to run their administration and the people to have the benefit of the promises the All Progressives Congress, APC made.

“Buhari urged Nigerians, especially those living in the urban areas, to exercise their civic rights to vote, “and this should change given the acceptance and vibrancy of democracy in Nigeria,” the post said.
