Former President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his happiness with ruling of the Presidential Elections Petition Court, which confirmed the victory of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the February 25 election.
The former President said the PEPC has “written history” by spurning intimidation and all manner of prejudice to deliver justice to a majority of citizens whose wish is that the choices they made are respected.
“If anybody has won today it is the democracy and the people,” he said.
“With the verdict of the Supreme Court, the election period is over and it is time to put the heat and dust behind us.
“From here, the new APC administration led by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should get the support of everyone in order to deliver the promises it made to the people.”
The former President thanked Nigerians for maintaining peace throughout this period and prayed for continued progress and development under the APC government.
He sent warm congratulations to President Bola Tinubu, the Vice President and the All Progressives Congress on the victory in court.
