The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed the appeal filed by PDP and Atiku for lacking in merit after challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential election of February 23, 2019.
The Senate President in a statement through his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi, said after the ruling, attention should be shifted to support President Buhari as he hopes to build the country.
“Now that the litigation is over, we should all rally as one people behind the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, in his commitment to building the great nation of our dream.”
“The petitioners should gracefully accept the final verdict of our court of law while the winners should demonstrate magnanimity by extending the hand of fellowship to the opposition with a view to carrying all Nigerians along in the arduous task of nation-building”.
Lawan charged President Buhari to continue to focus on good governance and deliver an agenda that will make the lives of Nigerians better.
He said the ninth National Assembly will continue to produce good legislation and pursue the harmonious relationship between the organs of government and among Nigerians for the unity, peace, and progress of our fatherland.
