Former Nigeria president, Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his satisfaction with the ruling of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT), which affirmed the victory of the All Progressives Congress candidate (APC), President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the February 25 election.
The five-man panel in their judgment, set aside the petitions of the presidential candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar Atiku and that of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
Buhari, in a statement signed by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Wednesday, Buhari said the Tribunal has “written history”.

According to Buhari, the jury withstood intimidation and prejudice to deliver justice according to law.
“If anybody has won today it is the democracy and the people,” the statement read, adding that “with the verdict of the Supreme Court, the election period is over and it is time to put the heat and dust behind us.
“From here, the new APC administration led by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should get the support of everyone in order to deliver the promises it made to the people.”
