In a historical ruling, President Bola Tinubu expressed his deep appreciation for the Supreme Court’s decision upholding his win in the February 25 Presidential Election.
The President, in a personal statement titled ‘It is time for us to build our great nation together,’ not only accepted the judicial victory with humility but also extended an invitation to all Nigerians to join in the mission of surpassing expectations in his remaining years in office.
The apex court, in a resounding judgment, dismissed appeals from Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party. The opposition’s claims of fraud, electoral law violations, and Tinubu’s eligibility to run for president were all found to be without merit.
President Tinubu commended the Supreme Court for its dedication and unwavering professionalism in handling the matter. He reiterated his unwavering faith in the Nigerian judiciary and its commitment to upholding the rule of law, even in the face of pressure and intimidation.
With the legal dispute now settled, President Tinubu pledged to serve all Nigerians, regardless of their political affiliations, tribes, or faiths. He emphasized the importance of unity and the strength of Nigeria’s diversity in building a stronger, more prosperous nation.
In his closing remarks, President Tinubu expressed his gratitude to the Nigerian people for their mandate and promised to work tirelessly, with the grace of God, to exceed their expectations in delivering good governance and improving the living conditions of all citizens.
