The Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday.
In a press statement he personally signed, Speaker Gbajabiamila felicitated with the Nigerians and the entire Leadership and members of the APC family nationwide for the victory.
The Speaker applauded the Nigerian Judiciary, especially members of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, for doing its job without fear or favour.
Speaker Gbajabiamila said “I am elated to congratulate the President on his victory at the tribunal. Ab initio, I had no doubt whatsoever in my mind that the President would come out victorious, considering the massive support Nigerians gave the President before and during the February 23 Presidential Election.
“May I also congratulate the Nigerian Judiciary for living up to expectations by doing the right thing. With this judgement, a precedent has been set for electoral matters in the country,” the Speaker added.
Gbajabiamila equally commended PDP and its Presidential Candidate Atiku for testing the country’s laws in a peaceful manner.
Recall that Presidential election petition tribunal in an 8-hour long judgement on Wednesday dismissed the petition by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its Presidential Candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
