Tribunal judgement, victory for Nigerians – Senate President


L-R: Lawan and President Muhammadu Buhari.

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the president’s resounding victory at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

The Tribunal on Wednesday dismissed the petition by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in its entirety.

Lawan said, “The judgment of the tribunal has again put a judicial seal on the mandate freely given to the president by the Nigerian people in the February 23 presidential election.”

He urged the President to accept the affirmation of his election as a reminder of the confidence of Nigerians in his capacity to continue to lead Nigeria towards its manifest destiny of greatness.

The Senate President said the Nigerian people have great expectations from the Next Level Agenda of the President and further pledged the full cooperation of the National Assembly with the Executive in the pursuit of the best interest of the Nigerian people.

Lawan also commended the petitioners for using the judicial window prescribed by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in seeking redress for their grievances and urged them to join hands with the government and the Nigerian people in the important task of nation-building.


  1. Comment:Nigerians have been joining the past government to actualize their goals but they failed them, where are their hope

  2. Indeed is a victory for the nigeria, that they still retain their sitting president despite atiku’s pressure

  3. All these our politicians are so daft and dumb. How can a senate president say the kangaroo tribunal judgement is victory for NIGERIANS? My question is which Nigerians does this judgement favour apart from them and themselves?

  4. Comment: what is Mr Lawal talking about? he is one of those playing politics with well being of this country. How has that become victory for Nigeria when forgery is being encouraged in the judgment. tribunal through this judgment has given allowance to forgery, perjury and relegation of education to the background.
