The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has urged the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, to call and congratulate President Bola Tinubu over his victory in the last election.
Reacting to the Supreme Court judgement, Keyamo said Atiku and Obi pursued their election petition with unnecessary venoms and hatred.
Keyamo stressed that sentiments have no place in judicial proceedings and deliberations.
Posting on X, Keyamo said the judgement differentiated between law and emotion.
According to Keyamo: “By the judgment of the Supreme Court today, the laymen prowling all over the social media can now clearly see that there is a wide chasm between emotions and law.
“This were Election Petitions pursued with unnecessary venom and hatred by most of those involved. Today, they have learnt a bitter lesson that such venom, hatred and sentiment have no place in judicial proceedings and deliberations. Their journey has come to a grinding end.
“We had consistently made the same points to the opposition, but they kept giving their supporters false hopes and goading them in the wrong direction. Unfortunately for them, all the vituperations poured out against the judiciary actually cut no ice with it. Our Justices are always firm, courageous and cerebral. Kudos to them.
“What is now left is nation-building. The other Presidential candidates must now call President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and congratulate him as true patriots. We as patriotic citizens must also now close ranks to help steer our country in the right direction. I wish all of us well.”
