A pan-African students movement-Progressive Students Movement on Thursday, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to be steadfast and focused in his determination to deliver his campaign promises to Nigerians.
The group said that it “considers the ruling of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in the Feb. 23 election as a true reflection of the mandate given to Buhari by millions of Nigerians”.
The president of the group in Nigeria, Mr Bestman Okereafor, stated this while speaking with Nigeria News Agency on the tribunal judgment delivered in Abuja on Wednesday.
Okereafor also commended the judiciary for its professional conduct and unbiased judgment, calling on all state election tribunals to emulate same and dispense justice without fear or favour and devoid of political interference.
“The group salutes the doggedness of Atiku Abubakar for exercising his constitutional right by challenging the outcome of the elections in court (tribunal).
“We are passionately calling on him to accept the tribunal verdict with utmost good faith and support the Buhari-led administration for the development of our beloved country,” he said.
