Written by Tunde Adeyemi on October 26, 2023
Former President, Muhammadu Buhari says the decision to dismiss the appeals by Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi of the Labour Party by the Supreme Court is a welcome relief to him and to a majority of the citizens.
Buhari’s former spokesperson, Garba Shehu in a statement said
Buhari noted that the country deserves a break after a tortuous 8-months of expensive legal journey.
He urged the opposition having fought a good fight and exhausting their rights as constitutionally allowed, to take the hand of fellowship extended by the Tinubu/Shettima APC government.
He charged them to allow the government run its administration and the people to have the benefit of the promises the All-Progressives Congress, APC made.
The former president expressed concern over low voting percentage all over the country, especially in urban areas charging that this should change given the acceptance and vibrancy of democracy in Nigeria.
He wished the President and his team a successful term in office.
