President Bola Tinubu, in response to the Supreme Court’s affirmation of his presidential election victory on February 25, stated, “The judgment of the Supreme Court has put an end to shenanigans, a stop to innuendos, and a stop to trials in media and public space. The court has demonstrated a commitment to the rule of law, humanity, and a commitment to good justice for all Nigerians, regardless of ethnic, religious, and any other bias.”
Paparazzi reported that the apex court upheld Tinubu’s victory, with Justice Inyang Okoro delivering the ruling.
Justice Okoro emphasized that there was no merit in the petitions filed by Tinubu’s main challengers, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP), respectively.
Tinubu added, “The ruling will allow us to concentrate on building a new, inclusive economy, pulling Nigerians from the trap of depression, and addressing the suffering in the country.”
