Tinubu’s Supreme Court Victory Has Strengthened Nigeria’s Democracy – Robinson Uwak

A former member of the House of Representatives, Robinson Uwak has congratulated President Bola Tinubu for emerging victorious at the Supreme Court following lawsuits challenging the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had announced Tinubu winner of the poll.

The election was challenged up to the Supreme Court by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the Labour Party flagbearer, Peter Obi.

Both the Presidential Election Petition Court and the Supreme Court held that their applications were lacking in merit.

He said, “With the victory of President Tinubu, Nigerian democracy has been strengthened and made more vibrant for the good of all citizens,” adding he remained “confident in President Tinubu’s ability to turn around the fortunes of our nation for good.”
