Fayemi to Tinubu: Use s’court victory to heal divisions in Nigeria

Kayode Fayemi, former governor of Ekiti, says President Bola Tinubu should use his victory at the supreme court to heal the divisions afflicting the country.

In a ruling on Thursday, a seven-member panel of the apex court led by Inyang Okoro, ruled that the petitions by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) were “frivolous” and “lacking in merit”. 

Reacting to the judgment on Friday, Fayemi, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the verdict further validated Tinubu’s victory at the polls and that the ruling was a testament to the faith Nigerians have in the governing party.

“In celebrating the president’s victory, we must also be mindful of the need to avoid triumphalism, while acknowledging the importance of running an inclusive government,” he said.

He urged President Tinubu “to embrace the spirit of inclusivity by reaching out to his political competitors and fostering an atmosphere of unity”.

“As we move forward, it is essential that we prioritize the development, security, and prosperity of Nigeria above all else,” he added.

“I urge the President to use his victory as an opportunity to heal the divisions in our country and to build a more prosperous and inclusive Nigeria for all.”
