Tinubu congratulated President Buhari on a well deserved legal battle of the hard-won electoral victory.
“The rule of law conclusively affirmed the collective voice of the people by dismissing the petition filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and their presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
“The sun rose high in the Nigeria sky today to shine its light over the entire land.
“Atiku should now channel the energy and intellect deployed in the electoral and legal processes toward joining APC ‘to move this nation more rapidly and assuredly forward’
“On February 23, the people tendered the foremost expression of their sovereign, democratic will by voting for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari
“This decision and this day will be recorded as important milestones on Nigeria’s inseparable march towards perfecting democracy and the rule of law across our land,” he said.
“Democracy has been affirmed and strengthened. By its ruling, the Supreme Court also affirmed that the rule of law is paramount; that the law is to be applied objectively, without regard to fear, friend or foe.
“The law is the law. Nothing is to be added to it and nothing subtracted from it. No one should enjoy undue favour or suffer unjust prejudice from its application.
“In so doing, it undergirded its reputation as the highest court in the law and the ultimate guardian of the rule of law in our nation”
