Tribunal: how Buhari was saved from trauma
President Muhammadu Buhari says but for Wednesday Federal Executive Council meeting, he would have gone into trauma during the last sitting of the election petition tribunal held at the Appeal Abuja.
The president gave the indication while hosting governors of the All Progressives Congress who paid him a congratulatory visit at the presidential villa, Abuja Friday.
He said the long session of the FEC meeting, where indicators of the twenty-twenty budget were discussed, he would have been traumatized by the long sitting of the tribunal.
He imagined the negative implication of the judgment if he had lost at the tribunal and congratulated the governors who he said would also have been affected.
On concerns raised in the public over his qualification, the president wondered why the People's Democratic Party doubted his competencies after a successful stint in the Nigerian Military.
The governors congratulated the president asking him to continue the good work of his administration.
Acting chairman of the Governors Forum, Atiku Bagudu described the appeal court judgement as landmark saying it will allow the president to maintain the tempo at returning the country on a stronger footing.
APC Chairman Adams Oshiomole also congratulated the president saying he won the at the court due to his integrity which is lacking in the people prosecuting him.
He said the victory will encourage focus on governance to deliver the party’s campaign promises.
