Tribunal verdict: I wasn’t worried about worried about Atiku’s petition – Buhari

In reaction to the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on the February 23, 2019 poll, President Muhammadu Buhari said it is a victory for Nigerians, who elected him for second term.

On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, tribunal declared President Buhari as the authentic winner of the 2019 presidential election.

Buhari speaking on his victory noted that he was not worried about the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to challenge the outcome of the election.

Quoting the president, presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina said, “Good conscience fears no evil report. I was unperturbed all along, because I knew Nigerians freely gave us the mandate. We are now vindicated.”

According to Adesina, Buhari dedicated his victory to God and also commended the judiciary for “dispensing justice without fear or favour.”
