In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Levinus Nwabughiogu, Kalu said that Nigerians couldn’t have made a wrong choice on February 25, 2023, when they filed out en masse to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate.
Kalu said that the tribunal’s ruling only affirmed the people’s verdict and further lent credence to the legitimacy of Tinubu’s election.
He said: “Kalu said that Tinubu’s victory as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after the February presidential election was never in doubt.”
He commended the President for staying focused on governance despite the obvious attempts by his opponents to distract him through litigations from the onerous task of fixing the country.
Kalu urged the opponents to key into the Renewed Hope agenda of the current administration, urging them to end the legal voyage and join hands with the president and all well-meaning Nigerians across all political divides to move the country forward.
The Deputy Speaker commended the thoroughness and professionalism displayed by the five-man panel led by Justice Haruna Tsammani in interpreting the law and dispensing justice.
Kalu who, however, hailed Tinubu’s opponents for deepening democracy through their actions that further tested the nation’s constitution and the electoral laws, also commended them for not resorting to violence or other extrajudicial means after the polls but elected to pursue their grievances through the court.
He also congratulated the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Hon. Nkiruka Onyejiocha, on her victory at the tribunal over the seat of Isiukwuato/Umunneochi Federal Constituency of the State.…… Continue Your Reading
