Abuja, Sept 7, 2023 – Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Thursday commended the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal for affirming the victory of President Tinubu in the 2023 general elections.

Wike gave the commendation while speaking on Channels Television, saying: “Nigerians have spoken, the court has affirmed it.”

 “I didn’t expect that the election would be overturned because the President won squarely.

“I am happy; it’s a moment of joy. I celebrate Mr President and I congratulate him and his Vice, Shettima for the victory.”

“I also commend the judiciary. For the first time as far as I am concerned, I have never seen what I saw yesterday (Wednesday).

“It opened the eyes of the public. I commend them. For sitting nothing less than 10 hours to deliver those judgments, you must have to commend them, painstakingly taking each time one by one. For me, it shows that our judiciary is improving.” (GBN)
