Buhari urges election losers to seek redress in court

President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to those who are unhappy with the results of the just concluded elections in Nigeria to contest the outcomes in court and wait patiently for the legal system to decide on the cases presented.

The Nigerian leader who gave the charge in his Easter Message to Nigerians on Friday, also charged citizens to, in the spirit of the renewed hope the season represents, continue to be confident of the country.

“As a nation, we have gone through an election that has produced the next set of leaders at the federal and State levels.

“I commend Nigerians for believing in the process. While I congratulate those that have been elected, I acknowledge that it is the right of those who feel dissatisfied with the outcome to seek redress. I expect them to wait patiently and allow our legal system run its course”, he said

According to him, successes recorded in various sectors of Nigeria’s nationhood had been as a result of the support Nigerians had given him.

“It has been a rare privilege for me to serve as your President since you gave me the first mandate in 2015 and renewed it in 2019.

“Day after day, I have been guided by the vows I took to keep Nigeria united, prosperous and secure.

“As we celebrate this season with our families, neighbors and communities, let us do so in love, compassion, kindness, resilience and forgiveness.”

President Muhammadu Buhari will complete his two terms of eight years as stipulated by the Nigerian constitution later in May. He will hand over the throne of leadership to the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, also of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
