The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Friday morning, urged Nigerians who are aggrieved by the outcome of the February 25 and March 18 elections to “wait patiently and allow our legal system to run its course.”
He urged all Nigerians to continue to be confident in the country for better seasons ahead.
The President also said he had been guided by the vows he took to keep Nigeria united and prosperous and counted it a “rare privilege” to be elected twice, in 2015 and 2019.
Buhari said this in his last Easter Day message to citizens as President.
Describing Easter as a season commemorating the triumph of light over darkness, the President said “I join Christians in Nigeria and around the world to celebrate Easter, which commemorates the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, signposting his victory over death.
He commended Nigerians for believing in the electoral process that produced the next set of leaders at the federal and State levels.
However, he noted disgruntled sections of the electorate, urging them to allow justice to prevail at the courts.
