Former President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulate President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the verdict of the Supreme Court affirming his 2023 election victory.

VerseNews reports that in a statement signed by the ex-president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari said the decision to dismiss the appeals by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), by the Supreme Court, is a welcome relief to him and to a majority of the citizens of Nigeria.

The former President repeated what he said on the earlier 6 September verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court, which affirmed that Tinubu’s victory, that the welcome decision is “a reaffirmation of the will of the majority of the people against the determined will of a hard-fighting minority.”

“Now that we have arrived at the last bus-stop, after a tortuous 8-months of expensive legal journey, the nation deserves a break. The opposition has fought a good fight.

“Having now exhausted their rights as constitutionally allowed, they should take the hand of fellowship extended by the Tinubu/Shettima @OfficialAPCNg government. Let them allow the Government to run their administration and the people to enjoy the full benefits of the promises the All Progressives Congress (APC) made,” Buhari said.

The former President expressed concern over low voting percentages all over the country, especially in urban areas, and said this should change, given the acceptance and vibrancy of democracy in Nigeria.
