BAT Ambassadors congratulate Tinubu on victory at Supreme Court, urge Atiku and Obi to accept verdict



Foremost presidential campaign group of the APC, the BAT Ambassadors,  has congratulated President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the Thursday, 26th October 2023 judgement of the Supreme Court upholding his election.

The group, in a statement by its National Coordinator, Chief Jamiu Ekungba, said the judgement of the apex court was ” a further affirmation of the mandate freely
given Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the 25th February 2023 presidential election by Nigerians.”

Asserting that this group, the BAT Ambassadors,
remains proud to be part of the process that ensured the victory of Tinubu at that election, Chief Ekungba called on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi to accept the verdict of the Supreme Court and join hands with the President to move the nation forward.

“The highest court in the land has, through its verdict, affirmed that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu was duly and validly elected as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. As statesmen that they are, we expect both Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr Peter Obi to accept that verdict in good faith and join hands with the President to move the nation forward. Their litigations, while they lasted, were regarded by many as though sources of distractions, indeed, the suits were their legitimate and  constitutional rights and means of disputing the result of the Presidential election. Nigerians and all people of goodwill now expect them to sheath their swords,  congratulate the winner and allow him to concentrate on tasks of governance. ”

The BAT Ambassadors also called on President Tinubu to continue to display courage in tackling the myriad of problems confronting the nation, while equally admonishing Nigerians on perseverance.

“Of particular interest to us is the turn around of the economy that thoroughly need recalibration. The president has demonstrated uncommon courage in situations where some others will shy away.

“As a veteran of democratic governance, the president surely knows that he would still need to do more. He must galvanise all those he has appointed into key positions and those he will still appoint to truly key into his Renewed Hope Agenda. There must be no room for saboteurs in any form or shape.

“And to the rest Nigerians, we say ‘give this president your unalloyed support’, as he knows where the shoe pinches and he will not disappoint”, Chief Ekungba said in the press statement.
