PEPT judgement: Group asks Atiku, Obi to join Tinubu’s developmental agenda 

A pro-democracy group, Coalition of Good Governance and Change Initiative (CGGCI), has asked Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and that of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, to drop their judicial challenges against President Bola Hammed Tinubu in the interest of ongoing development agenda.

The group, in their thousands, during a solidarity walk to the venue of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT), armed with various placards, Wednesday in Abuja, said within hundred days in office Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been able to diversified the Nigerian economy, recreating federal ministries and assigning them appropriately, adding that many other steps taken were already yielding fruits.

Speaking with newsmen during the peaceful walk, national coordinator of the coalition, Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi, said both Atiku of PDP and Obi of LP should accept the outcome of the Tribunal.

According to him, It is a great indication that the world has agreed with the mandate of the Nigerian people that Asiwaji still remains the choice of the people. 

When asked for his message for both Atiku and Obi, Ogenyi said: “They are Nigerians. But we, Nigerians rejected them with the mandate to lead us through the ballot. They should accept the verdict of the Court and move on with the President. 

“The President is a welcoming President as you can see from Chief Olabode George who was called out for criticising the President. Chief George said before the general elections that that if Bola Tinubu becomes the President he will relocate to Ghana. Today, he is still in Nigeria enjoying the dividends of democracy under the same President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. 

“We are saying that Atiku, Peter Obi and Kwankwaso are all welcome to be part of the administration. As all what we want is to ensure the success and progress of the Nigerian system which we believed is going to be obtainable under the President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration.”

On why they embarked on the solidarity walk to the Tribunal, Ogenyi said: “We are here today in celebration of the mandate that the people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria willingly gave to President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, that is being affirmed by the Court today. 

“We are here to thank God Almighty for appealing to conscience of the handlers and indeed affirming the mandate of the Nigerian people. We work tirelessly for the emergence of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. And God Almighty has prevailed that the mandate is not truncated. 

“We want to thank the Justices of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal who have sat as the Justice of the tribunal for delivering a sound judgement today. 

“It is not a mistake that we are Nigerians by providence. And God Almighty has brought President Asiwaju to liberate the sufferings of the Nigerian people. Asiwaju has come with so many promises and he is fulfilling them. 

“Within 100 days in office, he was able to sign the students loans Act into law. Within 100 days in office, he has initiated measures to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal that was done by the previous administration. Within 100 days in office, he was able to diversify the Nigerian economy recreating ministries and assigning them appropriately. 

“Within 100 days in office, Asiwaju’ has continued to take giants strides. The world has come to reckon with Nigeria. And the United States of America has invited him for a side talk at the on-going NUGA game in Portugal. And being the only African leader invited for the meeting. 

“It is a great indication that the world has agreed with the mandate of the Nigerian people that Asiwaji still remains the choice of the people.”
