The National Coalition for Change (NCC) the judgement upheld the will of Nigerians over corruption activities among top shots and many others.
The NCC's secretary general, Jeremiah Giwa, called on the president to use the tribunal's verdict as an opportunity to roll out the final phase of his reforms for Nigeria.
Giwa said also urged the major opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate to pursue their rights in a manner that does not threaten the peace and unity of Nigeria.
Also stating the the tribunal's judgement is a victory for Nigeria's democracy, Giwa said the verdict would go an extra mile to prove that propaganda, even when deployed by corrupt moneybags, is no match for the will of the people and the rule of law.
Describing the tribunal judges as the true heroes of Nigeria's democracy, Giwa said they have proven that upright men who cannot be swayed by ethno-religious sentiments and bribes can still be found in the country.
"Prior to the Tribunal’s verdict, the impressive reduction in the intensity of crimes before and after the election is well documented; we shall therefore hold Atiku and the PDP responsible for any upsurge in terrorist attacks, banditry, kidnapping, ethno-religious strife and other spikes in crime in the aftermath of the ruling," Giwa said.
"We congratulate Nigerians on being saved from the desperadoes that had attempted to exploit the judiciary as a tool to overthrow the government they had overwhelmingly entrusted with the mandate to administer the country," he added.
