Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) says the victory of President Bola Tinubu at the presidential election petition tribunal has strengthened the popular mandate of the people.
The national president of RTEAN, Musa Maitakobi, stated this in a congratulatory message to Mr Tinubu on Monday.
He said the tribunal’s verdict showed that Mr Tinubu won the 2023 presidential election.
Mr Maitakobi also said the success of the incumbent president at the tribunal further consolidated the popular mandate of the joint ticket of Mr Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima.
“I applaud the judgment of the presidential election petitions tribunal for upholding the victory of our president, His Excellency Bola Tinubu, and our vice-president, Kashim Shettima, at the 2023 presidential poll. Our judiciary again rose to the occasion in spite of the intimidation. Also, we can see that our country’s electoral process is making steady progress and deserves the appreciation and support of all citizens,” said the RTEAN statement.
The transport workers added, “President Tinubu’s victory was never in doubt. He was the overwhelming choice of Nigerians, and what the judiciary has done has set a seal on it.”
Mr Maitakobi also mentioned that the leadership and the members of RTEAN were happy that the era of “renewed hope” would continue for the progress and development of the country.
