A member of the National Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Nduka Anyanwu has described the decision of the 5-man panel of justices of the presidential election tribunal to uphold the election of President Muhammadu Buhari as victory for Nigerians and APC.
Anyanwu said this while congratulating the president on his victory.
The APC chieftain stated that over the last four years, “the Buhari led government has steered Nigeria away from the uninspiring trend which characterized governance during the reign of the People's Democratic Party.”
Anyanwu described Buhari's victory at the tribunal as “an opportunity for Nigerians to experience more years of purposeful leadership.”
His words: “President Buhari has by his disposition shown to be what Nigeria needs at this time.
“Having been saddled with the uphill task of reviving a country left to bleed to death by the PDP, Buhari has through many of his actions restored sanity in governance"
“Today, we have a country where building and rebuilding of infrastructure have taken the centre stage.
“Gradually we are returning to the era where the abundant wealth of Nigeria is being utilized purposefully.”
Chief Anyanwu however noted that the victory means more work for the APC and the government, stressing that Nigerians are in high hopes that the president's victory will enhance the pace of the delivery of the dividends of democracy in the country.
“The APC must through the strength that this judicial victory has afforded it, reinvigorate itself for future elections in order to consolidate on the gains the party has recorded so far,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday, September 11, congratulated President Buhari on his victory.
Wike, the coordinator of the opposition's campaign in the south-south during the 2019 presidential election, in a press statement signed by his media aide, Simeon Nwakaudu, urged the president to use his victory to work for Nigeria's unity.
