According to him, Nigerians would accept the outcome of the court, especially when Nigerians can be convinced that the judiciary is fair enough.
His statement reads in part:
“If they go through this process and the judges convince us that everything was done correctly and we adopt the numbers, whoever is the winner, we will congratulate the person.”
He added that the victory of Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election, is still "premature" until he can see what INEC uploaded with his own eye.
'Suspend Emefiele now': Tinubu's aide tells Buhari, gives new reason

Onanuga made the call following the failed cashless policy that Emefiele introduced, which had made many Nigerians stranded and crippled the economy.
The President-elect's aide posited that someone like Emefiele should not be occupying sensitive positions like the office of the CBN governor.
