Supreme Court judgment: Time To Jettison Politics And Rebuild Nigeria, Says Egbetokun

Former Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Right Honourable Samson  Egbetokun, has urged all Nigerians, especially politicians to get down to the business of rebuilding Nigeria with the final seal on the Tinubu presidency as affirmed by the Supreme Court judgment.

Reacting to the judgment that validated and upheld the earlier ruling of the Court of Appeal on the election of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, he said the judgment has effectively ended all jostling on politics and leadership.

"What the Supreme Court did is not just to affirm the validity of President Bola Almed Tinubu's mandate, but a call to duty.

The learned Justices saved Nigeria from unnecessary and prolonged distractions by promptly giving their verdict so that we can get down to the task of rebuilding our country.

"Whatever each of the protagonists may feel, this is not a victory for President Tinubu alone or any political party. This is admonition for us to collectively work towards fixing Nigeria again," Egbetokun's said.

In a statement issued by his Media Aid , Prince Olamilekan, the Former Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly and also Senior Special Adviser on political Matters in Ogun State commended the Supreme Court and the entire judiciary for putting Nigeria first and upholding the rule of law.

"One remarkable feature of our judiciary is that despite all challenges facing the country, despite all seeming uncertainties, our Supreme Court has always displayed an independent and calming disposition on the country. 

This is one such instance. Our justices must be commended for their service to the country.

"Now is the time to jettison politics and work with President Tinubu to get Nigeria working again. It is now a matter of duty to our people. 

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr. Peter Obi, their political parties and followers should think Nigeria first, not just because the Supreme Court is the final arbiter but the higher interest of the people who we are all aspiring to serve, to support and collaborate with the President to get Nigeria back on track."

He thanked Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr. Peter Obi for enriching Nigeria's jurisprudence through their democratic litigations to challenge the election, noting that the electoral process gets better as a result.
