The Enugu chapter of the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to accept the decision of the Supreme Court.
Naija News reported that the Supreme Court had on Wednesday dismissed the case instituted by Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the 2019 election victory of President Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The seven-man panel of the court, headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Mohammed in a unanimous judgement, affirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari was validly elected as Nigeria’s President in the February 23 presidential election.
The Supreme Court panel, however, said it will give reasons for its decision at a later date.
In a congratulatory message released on Friday by the BSO secretariat, the group urged Atiku to support President Buhari for the overall interest of Nigeria.
According to the BSO, supporting Buhari was necessary in order to sustain the ongoing infrastructure and agriculture revolution in the country.
BSO noted that the Supreme Court ruling will now enable Buhari to concentrate his attention on his efforts to take Nigeria to the next level.
The statement read: “When Buhari assumed office, he saw that many states owed workers and he released bailout funds and Paris Club refunds to enable them to pay workers.
“Before minimum wage for the Nigerian worker was N18000 and he upped it to N30, 000. Many unemployed Nigerians have benefitted from NPOWER and other packages in the Social Investment Programme. Nigeria’s position has improved in the ease of doing business ranking.
“Serious efforts are being made to tackle insecurity in the country. No Nigerian territory is under Boko Haram control now. The military and other security agencies are turning the heat on bandits and other criminals.
“EFCC is fighting cybercriminals who are giving Nigeria negative image abroad. We are confident that by the time Buhari leaves office, Nigeria must have been fully repositioned on the path of sustainable development.”
