The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Thursday, said there was still room for the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party, Peter Obi, “to actualise their presidential aspiration after the second-term tenure of President (Bola) Tinubu in 2031.”
The ruling party chair also applauded the Supreme Court’s decision which upheld the victory of President Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election.
Ganduje, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Edwin Olofu, on Thursday, said the judgment had laid to rest all claims by the opposition political parties that the votes at the presidential poll were manipulated in favour of Tinubu.
He stated that the outcome of the Supreme Court verdict would now pave the way for Tinubu to concentrate on implementing the ‘Renewed Hope’ mandate of the APC for the benefit of Nigerians.
“Nigeria belongs to all of us; it is our responsibility as patriots to pull our resources together to move the country forward.
“I congratulate both Atiku and Obi for their dogged fight in extending the frontiers of our democracy and law.
“This is democracy. Tinubu’s victory is another victory for democratic rule in the country.
“There is still room for both Obi and Atiku to actualise their presidential aspiration after the second-term tenure of President Tinubu in 2031,” he said.
Ganduje also called on Nigerians, irrespective of political leanings, to rally around the President to ensure that he delivers more dividends of democracy and move the country to the path of sustainable progress.
