An Abuja based industrialist, Estate Surveyor and Valuer, ESP. Mark Ugorji has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on the validation of his re-election by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
In an exclusive interview with SuncityNews, the former House of rep. candidate in the last general election, hailed the tribunal for affirming the president’s victory in the last general elections and urged the president and members of his cabinet not to relent in their efforts to deliver the dividends of democracy to the ordinary Nigerians.
“This verdict had further demonstrated that the judiciary remains the hope of the common man, the judiciary has again proved itself strong in the protection of democracy and the rule of law in Nigeria,’’ he said.
SUNCITYNEWS recalls that the PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, had approached the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja, seeking the nullification of the victory of Buhari in the February 23, 2019 poll.
Ugorji advised former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to accept the verdict in good faith and join hands with the president to move the nation forward.
The former house of representative candidate also urged President Buhari to use his victory to work for all Nigerians, irrespective of their political leanings and work towards the unity of the country.
