The Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Dr. Samuel Ogbuku, lauded the recent Supreme Court judgment validating President Bola Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 election, asserting that it upholds the genuine mandate bestowed upon him by the Nigerian people. Expressing his satisfaction with the verdict, Ogbuku emphasized the need for a focus on governance and urged all Nigerians, including opposition parties, to unite in building a new Nigeria.
In a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Sunday, Ogbuku, through his media aide Willie Etim, stated that the legal challenges against Tinubu were unwarranted, as the facts spoke for themselves. He asserted that the Supreme Court’s decision reflects the people’s mandate, settling the contentious arguments surrounding the elections.
Ogbuku conveyed his belief that Nigeria, under President Tinubu’s leadership, will witness progress and development, positioning the country rightfully within the global community. He extended congratulations to the President, commending him for his commitment to democracy, the rule of law, and the independence of the judiciary.
He expressed pride in Tinubu’s achievements in office, citing initiatives aimed at improving the economy, security, physical infrastructure, and social welfare for all Nigerians. Ogbuku’s statement highlighted the president’s grace and statesmanship in the face of unfounded allegations from opponents, emphasizing the restoration of hope in the Nigerian project under Tinubu’s guidance.
“I have confidence that you will restore hope in the Nigerian project. You have inspired millions of Nigerians to believe in the possibility of a brighter future. I join you in celebrating this important milestone as you steer our country towards steady progress and rejuvenation,” Ogbuku stated.
