A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Ambassador Abayomi Mumuni, has enjoined members of the party not to insult the Presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party (LP) Mr. Peter Obi over the presidential tribunal verdict, just as he said time has come to heal the country.
The APC chieftain gave the advice on Saturday, while reacting to the tribunal verdict which dismissed the petitions of the PDP, LP and Allied Peoples Movement (APM), challenging the victory of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling APC at the February 25, 2023 poll.

He added that the party has been restructured and has developed its winning streaks that will make it coast home to victory, saying Senator Dino Melaye will form the next government of the state.

The Court of Appeal in Abuja, on Saturday, affirmed Wasiu Eshinlokun-Sanni of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the winner of the Lagos Central Senatorial District election.
The court, in a unanimous decision by a three-member panel of justices, dismissed the appeal before it by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Francis Adewale Gomez.
The court held that the appeal lacked merit and therefore deserved to be dismissed.
The PDP candidate, through his team of lawyers led by Joseph Daudu, SAN, among other things, contended that the APC and its candidate did not secure the majority of lawful votes cast at the election.
He alleged that the election was characterised by irregularities and corrupt practices, asking the court to declare the petitioner the authentic winner of the election.

The 2023 general election will go down in history as the most significant opportunity lost in the country’s electoral history. Going by the presidential tribunal judgement, the general election is just another disturbing illustration of the tactics utilised by the cabal in Nigeria that has been in control of the country’s state power for decades.
The fact is: this general election has the best preparations. All of the money was generously and on time released. The Electoral Act 2022, which Muhammadu Buhari kindly signed into law as president, also provided the legal framework and essential missing pieces, namely electronic components – electronic accreditation, voter identification, and real-time uploading of results from the polling units.
