The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has issued a statement encouraging Nigerians to embrace the decision of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal. The tribunal, led by Chairman Haruna Tsammani, recently delivered its verdict, declaring that the case brought before it by Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party lacked merit. Consequently, this decision upheld the victory of President Tinubu in the Presidential election held on February 25.
In response to this judgment, Reverend John Hayab, the Kaduna State chairman of CAN, emphasized the importance of allowing the rule of law to prevail, contributing to Nigeria’s overall peace and unity. He underscored the need for Nigerians to respect the judicial system and its decisions, recognizing that this is vital for the nation’s stability and coexistence.
Reverend Hayab stated, “As Nigerians, we must uphold the principle of unity, setting aside political differences. We should cooperate with the individual endorsed by the court to lead the nation towards development. Politicians may come and go, but the country endures.
Therefore, we must prioritize national unity and resist the efforts of self-serving individuals who seek to sow discord and chaos, potentially leading to loss of life and property damage, which would hinder rather than advance Nigeria’s progress.”
He appealed to politicians and all Nigerians to accept the tribunal’s judgment, even if it diverged from their expectations.
