Renowned Niger Delta Youth leader, Amb. John Dekawei, Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State has congratulated President Bola Tinubu on his supreme court victory as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Niger Delta Youth leader cum philanthropist and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in South South Zone, Dekawei issued the congratulatory message to newsmen in Abuja via a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide yesterday.

Dekawei had particularly enjoined Nigerians to accept the current political reality and begin to plan towards working with Bola Tinubu as President of the country in moving Nigeria forward.

It would be recalled that Amb. John Dekawei, one of the most celebrated Niger Delta Youth leader was one of those from the region that first openly declared his support and endorsed Tinubu for President.

However, it would be recall that Dekawei had since January 18th 2022 endorsed Bola Tinubu for President, using The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide and other national dailies in Nigeria.

Nevertheless, true to his pledge, since the day after the public endorsement of Tinubu for President, Dekawei had used his personal resources in mobilizing youths across the region for Tinubu.

Speaking further, the multiple award winning Niger Delta Youth leader have charged Nigerians to get ready for uncommon transformational leadership under Tinubu.

According to Dekawei, a victory for Tinubu is a victory for democracy and a victory for Nigeria, stressing that he is confident that Tinubu will fix Nigeria just has he fixed Lagos state while as Governor.

Dekawei had particularly called on litigants to leave President Tinubu alone, adding that Nigeria must move on. Speaking further, the APC chieftain had also called on Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, Rabi’u Kwankwanso and others to accept defeat, stressing that if they have any good plan for the country, they should join forces with President Bola Tinubu in moving the country forward.

The Supreme Court on Thursday 26th of October 2023 agreed with the September 6 verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court, PEPC, on all counts. The seven-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Inyang Okoro, in unanimous judgment, resolved the seven issues for determination in the appeals filed by the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar; and his Labour Party, LP, counterpart, Mr. Peter Obi, in favour of Tinubu .

The legal tango started in March when Atiku, Obi, the Allied Peoples Movement, APM, and two others approached the PEPC to challenge the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 presidential poll.

The INEC had on March 1 announced that Tinubu of the APC won the presidential contest ahead of 17 other candidates. It declared that Tinubu scored 8,794,726 votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar, who got 6,984,520 votes, and Mr. Peter Obi, who came third with 6,101,533 votes.
