Democracy won’ – Buhari Reacts To Presidential Election Tribunal Judgement

The immediate past president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has reacted to the verdict of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.

The tribunal, on Wednesday, upheld the election and declaration of Bola Tinubu as president by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The court threw out cases brought before it by Atiku Abubakar (PDP) and Peter Obi (Labour Party) against Tinubu (APC).

Speaking through his media aide, Garba Shehu, Buhari described the court’s verdict as a representation of the will of Nigerians.

“The PEPC has written history by spurning intimidation and all manner of prejudice to deliver justice according law to a majority of citizens whose wish is that the choices they made are respected,” Buhari said.

“If anybody has won today it is the democracy and the people. With the verdict of the Supreme Court, the election period is over and it is time to put the heat and dust behind us.

“From here, the new APC administration led by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should get the support of everyone in order to deliver the promises it made to the people.”

The former President also appreciated Nigerians for maintaining peace and prayed for continued progress and development under the Tinubu-led APC government.

He congratulated the president, vice president Kashim Shettima, and the APC on the victory in court, expressing his best wishes to them in fulfilling the peoples’ aspirations.
