Buhari Technically Begs Atiku Not To Go To Supreme Court, Pleads To Work With PDP

President Muhammadu Buhari, has exhibited the stuff of a Statesman, as he extended a hand of fellowship to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, moments after the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal upheld his February 23, 2019 victory at the poll.
The five-man Tribunal, chaired by Justice Mohammed Garba, in a unanimous judgment that lasted over 9 hours, had thrown out a petition filed by the Candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and his party, challenging Buhari’s declaration as winner of the election.

It said that the petition lacked merit, and accordingly upheld the re-election of the President.
The battle is however, to shift to the Supreme Court, as Atiku and the PDP on Wednesday, signified their intention to challenge the judgment of the Tribunal.

Welcoming the judgment, the President in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, described it as a victory for Nigerians who trooped out to give him a fresh mandate for a second term in Office.
“Good conscience fears no evil report. I was unperturbed all along, because I knew Nigerians freely gave us the mandate. We are now vindicated”, the President said.

He dedicated the victory to God and to Nigerians, while also commending the Judiciary for “dispensing justice without fear or favour”.
Buhari also extended a hand of fellowship to those who had felt aggrieved at the outcome of the election, and went to court, noting that it was within their democratic rights.
He however, said that with the judgment of the Tribunal: “it is time for the country to move forward as one cohesive body, putting behind us all bickering and potential distractions over an election in which Nigerians spoke clearly and resoundingly”.
