‘Save your money, don’t appeal tribunal judgement’ – Yahaya Bello tells Atiku, Obi

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has urged the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and Labour Party’s Peter Obi to accept the tribunal’s verdict on the 2023 election.

The tribunal had ruled out petitions by Obi and Atiku against Tinubu’s election in February.

The duo have since vowed to appeal the ruling of the tribunal.

However, Bello told journalists in Abuja on Thursday that Atiku and Obi are better off moving on and supporting the Tinubu administration.

“As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think there’s any ground for appeal,” the governor declared.

“I would rather appeal to them that they should drop any appeal going to the higher court and then save the resources, save the trouble, advise their supporters, admonish them that we should accept yesterday’s judgement. No flaw.”

According to Bello, Nigerians within the country and in the diaspora are happy with the verdict as are members of the APC. 

“I think it is time to settle down and face governance. And I would advise all those that feel aggrieved [that] we have only one country, Nigeria; we must all come together and support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and ensure that we fix this country,” the governor said.

“Whatever the hardship we are facing today is the effect of the past. Definitely, we have Mr Fix-It who is here already trying to best, travelling across the world to ensure that Nigeria is fixed.”
