Tribunal verdict: Tinubu’s victory well deserved, says Edu
Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Betta Edu, has said that the verdict of the Presidential Elections Petition Tribunal, (PEPT), declaring President Bola Ahmed Tinubu winner of the 2023 presidential election Wednesday in Abuja, is a well-deserved victory.
She said the Tribunal’s affirmation of Tinubu as the duly elected president of Nigeria was a re-validation of the love Nigerians have for him and reaffirmation of the popular mandate they bestowed on him on February 25th, 2023.
“Let me on behalf of the ministry of humanitarian affairs and poverty alleviation, congratulate Mr. President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his well-deserved election tribunal victory.
“As the then National Women Leader of our great party, the All Progressives Congress, (APC), I joined Mr President to campaign across the 36 states and Abuja and I know how Nigerians accepted his Renewed Hope Agenda. He will not fail Nigerians!
“Now that the Court had spoken overwhelmingly, the petitioners should join Mr. President to alleviate the Poverty and renew the hopes of millions of Nigerians which will help to reduce the Humanitarian crisis across the Country,” she said.
“This victory is a double victory as he marks 100 days of exceptional leadership to Nigeria. The victory is deserving, and proper.
“Let me use this medium to appeal to my brothers who lost at the polls and also at the tribunal to place love for the country above politics and sentiments and join hands with the president to build a greater country,” she urged in a congratulatory message signed by her Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Rasheed Zubair.
