A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Amb. Abayomi Mumuni has said that Thursday’s Supreme Court judgement which affirmed President Bola Tinubu’s victory, will allow him to concentrate more on governance, and also boost his performance as a president.
Mumuni in a statement signed by his Media Aide, Rasheed Abubakar, hailed the judiciary for enriching Nigeria’s democracy by sticking to facts and not appealing to emotions and sentiments, noting that the victory will give Tinubu and his team the much-needed concentration on the nation building.
He however congratulated the President on the judgement, adding that he had the conviction that the Supreme Court would do its job since the opposition candidates have filed for appeal.
The APC stalwart urged all stakeholders to join hands with the President in building a stronger economy and greater Nigeria, noting that national interest precedes any other parochial interests.
“This ruling is a triumph for the vast majority of Nigerian citizens who cast their votes overwhelmingly for Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the ballot, I am glad that the judiciary did not appeal to emotions and sentiments but stuck to the facts of the matter.
“I congratulate Mr. President and our party the APC most heartily on this important victory. It finally put to rest the long and tortuous legal battle over the presidential election.
“This will provide the President and his team the needed concentration to focus on their task on nation building,” Mumuni said.
He added: “I urge all stakeholders to join hands with the President in building a stronger economy and greater Nigeria, noting national interest precedes any other parochial interests.”
