President Bola Tinubu believes the 2023 presidential election was one of the most credible in Nigeria’s history, despite the legal battles between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and opposition parties challenging his victory.
The petitions of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP) and Allied People’s Movement (APM) are before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja with judgement expected within days.
Tinubu made the remarks on Thursday during the first National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party in Abuja.
“The party is in your hands but let’s redirect this party; let’s show the rest of the country that we are a country united for a purpose and that purpose – development, progress, and posterity will not forgive us if we veer off that path,” he said.
“We honour their wishes but we coast into the future. It is an honourable thing. Yes, we are facing challenges in court, and I say this is one of the most free and fair elections in the history of Nigeria.”
