The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator George Akume, on Thursday hailed the Supreme Court judgment which confirmed the election of President Bola Tinubu, saying that it was victory for Nigeria’s democracy.
The SGF stated this while speaking to State House correspondents after a solidarity visit to the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Akume said: “It is a revalidation of the mandate which the Nigerian people gave him and our electoral process also involves the judicial process. The people spoke loud and clear, some people were aggrieved, reasons they went to the court to the judiciary
“The highest court, the Supreme Court spoke loud and clear that that mandate was freely given. That is what we want in this country.
“We want stability, we don’t want distraction, the President has taken off beautifully and he has the interest of the people at heart. So far the choices he’s making are tough but at the end of the day, they will make for a better tomorrow so we are very happy on what has happened today, Nigerians are celebrating,” Akume noted.
