Tribunal: Ondo Rep urges Atiku, Obi to support Tinubu

A member of the House of Representatives from Ondo State, Mr Jimi Odimayo, has described the verdict of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal as a reflection of the support by a majority in the country for President Bola Tinubu.
The PEPT five-man panel upheld the victory of Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election and dismissed the petitions of the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr Peter Obi respectively.
Odimayo, who represents the Okitipupa/Irele Federal Constituency of Ondo State in the lower chamber of the National Assembly, urged the PDP and LP candidates to forget about the case and join Tinubu in rebuilding Nigeria.
The federal lawmaker stated this in a statement he issued through his media office and made available to our correspondent on Saturday.
He said, “I want to encourage the candidates of the People’s Democratic Party, Abubakar Atiku and that of the Labour Party  Peter Obi to join hands with the president in the interest of the nation and to achieve the renewed hope agenda.
“This verdict from the court validates the mandate bestowed upon the President to deliver the Renewed Hope Agenda to the people of Nigeria, setting our country on the path of growth and prosperity.
“I must note that President Tinubu has wasted no time and has already taken bold measures to bolster the economy and empower our citizens.
While congratulating the president, Odimayo said the victory in the PEPT was a well-deserved one.
“Our democracy has been enriched and the right of Nigerians to freely elect leaders of their choice equally upheld as all issues were clinically examined and resolved in line with all relevant laws. The judgment is a triumph of truth”, the lawmaker stated.
