‘Whoever Is Dissatisfied With The Process Of Election Should Seek Redress In Court’ – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has said Atiku should seek redress in Court If he is not satisfied with the result of the election.
President Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was declared winner of the presidential election and has been given the Certificate of return.
However, the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has rejected the result and said he would take the matter to court.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha has said the President feels the process was transparent and has advised anyone dissatisfied with the result should seek redress in the court.
“We are not jittery at all because the process was open and transparent. It was a credible election and we will continue to savour in the victory but in the process too, we will extend the hand of friendship for the purpose of nation-building and reconciliation.
“Our electoral Act and the constitution have both provided a window for whoever is dissatisfied with the process of election to seek redress. That is the path and we will encourage them to go along that path.” he said.
“Looking into the future of the country, the President is very clear about what he wants to do. He will stand on the three pivot points that he pushed forward in 2015; securing the nation, diversifying the economy and also fighting corruption with all intensity.
“There will be inclusiveness all over the place. This is one government that has really invested in social infrastructure by bringing people who are below the poverty level up and out of poverty.
“There are so many things that we are looking forward to and I am very thrilled and grateful that we had this opportunity to now consolidate on the tenets and gains of our democracy.” The SGF said
