The Senate Leader, Senator Micheal Opeyemi Bamidele, has hailed the Judiciary for upholding the rule of law over emotions by affirming President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the winner of the February 25, 2023, Presidential Election.
A statement emanating from his media office in Abuja on Thursday, quoted Senator Bamidele as congratulating President Tinubu over the tribunal’s verdict, saying this has further buttressed the fact that he is holding a genuine and legitimate mandate.
The Senate Leader, while appealing to the petitioners to accept the outcome of the tribunal and join hands with President Tinubu to deliver on his “Renewed Hope Agenda” to Nigerians, said: ” politics is over , it is now time for governance.”
” I commend the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) for upholding the rule of law over emotions. With this, it has shown that emotions has no place in our jurisprudence and trial of cases that emanated from the conduct of elections.
” The verdict of the Justices has once again reaffirmed that Nigerians overwhelmingly voted for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu during February 25 , Presidential Election.
” In the interest of our beloved country, I, therefore, urge the petitioners to join hands with Tinubu’s administration to deliver his “Renewed Hope Agenda ” to Nigerians. Politics is over , it is now time for governance,” he said.
The five-member tribunal chaired by Justice Haruna Tsammani had on Wednesday upheld the election of President Tinubu.
