Supreme Court decision: UK group lauds Nigerian democracy

Nigerian democracy has again shown its maturity, says a political support group based in the United Kingdom (UK), Bola Tinubu Support Organisation (BTSO-UK).

The group’s Director-General, Mr Ade Adeshina, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, while reacting to the judgement of the Supreme Court, affirming Mr Bola Tinubu as the duly elected president of Nigeria.

Adeshina noted that the process, starting from electioneering campaigns, proper elections and all through the judicial processes, demonstrated that Nigeria had come of age.

According to him, the Nigerian democratic experience has become the pride of Africa, particularly in the West Africa region.

“Nigeria is currently the world’s most populous black nation. The country is Africa’s biggest economy. And one of the world’s largest democracies.

“With the Supreme Court decision, Nigerians must not take for granted the country’s modest achievements,” Adeshina said.

He described the process, including the Supreme Court pronouncement, triumph for democracy and justice.

“A time to go back to the renew hope agenda to build the Nigeria of our dreams,” he added.

Adeshina said it was heartening to witness the democratic process in action, and validating the collective voice of the Nigerian people.

“With this affirmation, we can now move forward with renewed confidence in our chosen leader.

“President Tinubu’s unwavering commitment to democracy and the rule of law is an inspiration to us all.

“His dedication to the welfare of the nation and its citizens has not gone unnoticed. We look forward to a brighter future under his leadership,” he said.

Adeshina, however, cautioned those who might want to undermine the nation’s democratic process and sow discord to jettison such acts.

“It is time to accept the verdict and join hands with the majority. Let us focus on the task at hand; building a stronger, united Nigeria.

“For those whose pockets may be burning with ambitions of wealth, let us remind them that true wealth lies in the well-being of our fellow citizens.

“It’s time to embark on a journey of helping the needy and contributing to the prosperity of our great nation,” he said. (NAN)
