The Lamidi Apapa-led faction of Labour Party on Saturday congratulated President Bola Tinubu after his victory was affirmed by the Supreme Court.
While urging the President to be magnanimous in victory, the LP splinter group also mocked its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, for putting a feeble petition that didn’t take the justices more than 120 minutes to dismiss.
The Supreme Court had on Thursday ended the 171-day legal tussle to nullify the election of the President with the rejection of the election appeals filed by Obi and his Peoples Democratic Party counterpart, Atiku Abubakar.
Reacting in a statement issued in Abuja on Saturday, spokesman of the LP faction, Abayomi Arabambi, disclosed that Tinubu’s victory was well-deserved having proven his case beyond reasonable doubt.
He said, “The victory has now settled all the controversies that arose from the February 25th presidential and National Assembly Election. It is our hope that the president will be magnanimous in victory by inviting the Labour Party Leadership as a partner in progress to his all inclusive government of national unity.”
