It’s time to unite for good governance, PIGGD tells Obi, Atiku after Supreme Court ruling
With the Supreme Court’s affirmation of President Bola Tinubu’s election victory, a group, the PVC Initiative for Good Governance Diaspora (PIGGD), has urged all stakeholders to join hands to ensure good governance in the country.
Recall that the apex court, last Thursday, struck out the appeals lodged by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party counterpart, Mr. Peter Obi challenging the September 6 verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court, PEPC, affirming Tinubu’s election.
Meanwhile, the group in a statement signed by its convener, Wisdom Opara, said following the judgement of the court, oppositions struggle has come to an end and Nigerians must come together for the nation’s common goal.
Part of the statement reads, “This is the time for a new beginning or journey. President Tinubu is the unopposed driver and he has everything it takes to drive this country to a better place. Opposition struggle has come to an end, Nigerians must come together for our common goal
“We, the PVC Initiative for Good Governance Diaspora appreciate the healthy competition and the way the opposition went about their grievances, meeting the courts in our land for redress and we appreciate the peace that followed the legal battles.
“The court has discharged its constitutional duty and reached unanimous decision, while it’s not easy for opposition, we urge them to swallow the decision of the court with a pinch of salt and understand the President would not rule forever, next four years is another window. Now is the time for collective service to our country.
“There comes a time patriotism should live above politics, now is the time to pursue bi-partisan agenda and move our country forward.”
