The Coalition for Good Governance and Change Initiative (CGGCI) has called on Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, respectively, presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP), to support President Bola Tinubu’s ongoing development agenda.
Addressing journalists on Wednesday in Abuja during a solidarity work in support of President Tinubu, the national coordinator of the group, Okpokwu Ogenyi, said both Atiku and Obi should accept the outcome of the tribunal judgement.
He said CGGCI embarked on the solidarity walk to celebrate the mandate of the people willingly given to President Tinubu, which has also been affirmed by the court
Ogenyi said: “It is a great indication that the world has agreed with the mandate of the Nigerian people that Asiwaju still remains the choice of the people.”
Asked for his message for both Atiku and Obi, he added: “They are Nigerians. But we, Nigerians, refused them the mandate to lead us through the ballot. They should accept the verdict of the court and move on with the President.
“We are saying that Atiku, Peter Obi, and Kwankwaso are all welcome to be part of the administration. All we want is to ensure the success and progress of the Nigerian system, which we believe is going to be attainable under President Bola Tinubu’s administration.”
The group also commended the justices of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal for delivering a sound judgement.
Ogenyi added: “It is not a mistake that we are Nigerians by Providence. God Almighty has brought President Asiwaju to liberate Nigerians from suffering. Asiwaju has come with so many promises, and he is fulfilling them.
“Within 100 days in office, he was able to sign the Student Loans Act into law. Within his first 100 days in office, he initiated measures to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal that was done by the previous administration. Within 100 days in office, he was able to diversify the Nigerian economy by creating ministries and assigning them appropriately.
“Within 100 days in office, Asiwaju has continued to take giant strides. The world has come to reckon with Nigeria. The United States of America has invited him for a side talk at the ongoing NUGA game in Portugal. And being the only African leader invited to the meeting. It is a great indication that the world has agreed with the mandate of the Nigerian people and that Asiwaju is the choice of the people.”
