Accept defeat, work with Buhari, Wase advises Atiku about tribunal

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Idris Wase, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at the Presidential Election Appeal Tribunal on Wednesday, describing the judgment as victory for democracy and the rule of law.

Wase added that with the judgment by the tribunal, Nigerians should eschew partisanship and rally behind the President in his quest to bring the much needed reforms.

He also commended the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for availing himself of the country’s legal and judicial system, while advising the former vice-president to accept the verdict in good faith.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Umar Puma, the Deputy Speaker said tribunal had, by its verdict, vindicated the Independent National Electoral Commission which declared President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress as the winner of the presidential election “in line with the mandate freely and willingly given by Nigerians.”

According to Wase, the judgment has further reaffirmed the confidence Nigerians have in the ability of Buhari to lead the country and their decision to re-elect him to take Nigerians to the next level.

The Deputy Speaker also congratulated the panel of jurists that sat through the case, describing the verdict as thorough.

“I wish to congratulate the learned jurists for delivering a thorough verdict, which will no doubt stand the test of time and strengthen the faith of the common man in the judiciary,” he stated.(Punch)
