Sheath Your Swords, Join Tinubu To Make Nigeria Great Again, Akpabio Tells Atiku, Obi, Others

The President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has called on the political leaders in the opposition parties to sheath their swords, after the Supreme Court has, today, October 26, ended the battle for the presidency, and asked them to join the victor, President Bola Tinubu to make Nigeria great again.
In a congratulatory message to Tinubu, issued by his spokesman, Eseme Eyiboh, Senator Akpabio described the verdict of the Supreme Court as reflective of the will of the people.
The Senate President emphasized the need for the major rivals of the President to sheath their swords of political combat and join hands with the Tinubu administration in the collective goal of making the nation great again.
“The elections have been announced by the electoral authorities and confirmed by the courts, and I call on all former political rivals of the president to show good faith by joining hands with the Bola Tinubu administration in its ongoing efforts to take the nation to a higher level.”
The Senate President said that he was personally elated that the jurists of the Supreme Court saw through the arguments and even without much technicalities, easily confirmed the victory of Tinubu in the poll.
“There is no doubt that victory came at a cost, but Mr President, that makes it even sweeter. I know you have in your years of public service yielded your personal and other comforts for the collective good and what it cost to confirm the victory in the courts should be seen with a similar vista.”
Senator Akpabio advised the president not to relent in being a father figure to his former rivals, saying that it is superfluous to remind the president of his well-known big heart.
The Senate President gave assurance that the National Assembly would continue to support the Tinubu administration by leveraging its legislative tentacles to raise the level of governance to a higher pedestal.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, also reacted to the Supreme Court verdict by emphasizing the importance of unity and collaboration.
He encouraged the opposition to take heart, recognizing that this is undeniably, Asiwaju’s time.
“Let’s come together for the betterment of our nation, as we embark on this journey of progress under the visionary leadership of President Tinubu.”
