President Muhammadu Buhari has hailed the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal ruling on Wednesday, saying that “a good conscience fears no evil report”.

Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, made this known after the judgement.

“Good conscience fears no evil report. I was unperturbed all along because I knew Nigerians freely gave us the mandate. We are now vindicated.”

Mr Buhari dedicated the victory to God, and to Nigerians, while also commending the judiciary for “dispensing justice without fear or favour.”

President Buhari extends a hand of fellowship to those who had felt aggrieved at the outcome of the election, and went to court, noting that it was within their democratic rights.

He noted, however, that with the pronouncement of the judiciary, “it is time for the country to move forward as one cohesive body, putting behind us all bickering and potential distractions over an election in which Nigerians spoke clearly and resoundingly.”

Mr Buhari’s reelection was challenged by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The election tribunal, however, dismissed the petition by Mr Abubakar and the PDP.
