Let’s Forget What Happened During Last Election; Unite to Make Nigeria Work—Tinubu Urges Obi, Atiku
Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu has extended an invitation to Peter Obi of the Labour Party, as well as Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and his other rivals in the 2023 presidential election, urging them to collaborate with him.
Despite Obi and Atiku previously contesting Tinubu’s election all the way to the Supreme Court, their petitions were controversially rejected by the apex court.
In his New Year’s Day address to Nigerians on Monday, the President said, “For the new year to yield all its good benefits to us as individuals and collectively as a people we must be prepared to play our part.
“The job of building a prosperous nation is not the job of the President, Governors, Ministers, Lawmakers and government officials alone. Our destinies are connected as members of this household of Nigeria. Our language, creed, ethnicity and religious beliefs even when they are not same should never make us work at cross purposes.
In this New Year, let us resolve that as joint heirs to the Nigerian Commonwealth, we will work for the peace, progress and stability of our country. I extend this call to my political opponents in the last election. Election is over. It’s time for all of us to work together for the sake of our country.
“We must let the light each of us carries – men and women, young and old – shine bright and brighter to illuminate our path to a glorious dawn.”
