Tribunal judgement vindicates, ends false narrative by PDP, LP, others  – APC Professionals 

The All Progressives Congress Professionals Forum (APC Professionals) has asked presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his counterpart in the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, to spare the country of further polarisation. 

The Forum said the recent judgement by the tribunal in favour of Bola Tinubu and APC is a vindication of lies by the opposition parties and also put an end to false narratives about the electoral process. 

Addressing a press conference Friday in Abuja, former governor of Bauchi state and Chairman, Board of Trustee of the APC Professional Forum, Isa Yuguda, said no personal interest or ambition should be more important than the collective interest of Nigerians for democratic deliverables, hence both Atiku and Obi should discontinue the legal battle against the President.

He said: “As party faithfuls and a forum of technocrats and Professionals in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), we are using this platform  to congratulate His Excellency President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his Vice President  Kashim Shettima on the affirmation of their February 25 2023 electoral victory by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal. 

“We see it as an attestation of the credibility of the Presidential election and as far as we are concerned, it has put to rest all the false narratives about the electoral process. 

“The Tribunal also vindicated our stance that the Presidential election was the  best in the country’s modern history considering how it shook the country’s political landscape.  

“Mr. President, the task ahead is an herculean one  that requires a focused and dedicated leadership to meet the yearnings of Nigerians and we have no doubt that you have all it takes to deliver on our campaign promises. 

“Your capacity has been proven overtime in your private and public careers just as you have  demonstrated enough courage to take tough but wise decisions for the good of all.   

“We have taken notice of the separate and almost simultaneously press conferences addressed by the Presidential candidates of the two opposition parties, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi and our message to both of them is this. 

“We concede that it is within the rights of the petitioners to proceed to the Supreme Court but we appeal to them to spare the country from further polarization of the citizenry and heating up the polity with another round of wild goose chase spiced with fake news and unverifiable claims.

“For us, we believe it is time for them to accept the verdict of Nigerians as affirmed by the Tribunal and join hands in supporting the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his Renewed Hope agenda of moving the country to development.

“No personal interest or ambition should be more important than the collective interest of Nigerians for democratic deliverables.”
