Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has urged the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to save themselves the troubles of approaching the Supreme Court and accept defeat.
Bello made the revelation following Wednesday’s verdict of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT), upholding the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election.
Following the judgment by the Tribunal, both Atiku and Obi have since publicized their decisions to challenge the judgment
Speaking to Journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Bello said Atiku and Obi are better off moving on and supporting the administration of President Tinubu.
“As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think there’s any ground for appeal.
“I would rather appeal to them that they should drop any appeal going to the higher court and then save the resources, save the trouble, advise their supporters, admonish them that we should accept the judgment. No flaw.”
Bello stated Nigerians at home and abroad are happy with the verdict as are members of the ruling party.
“I think it is time to settle down and face governance. And I would advise all those that feel aggrieved that we have only one country, Nigeria; we must all come together and support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and ensure that we fix this country.”
Gov. Bello emphasized that whatever the hardship Nigerians are facing today is the effect of the past. While noting that the president is trying his best by traveling across the world to ensure that Nigeria is fixed.
