“I have insisted that upholding the law strictly in our effort to break the electoral deadlock remains sacred. We must place a high value on the judiciary because it is an essential component of our democratic system and a tool for effective governance.
I kindly request that everyone in Nigeria continue to support the idea of a New Nigeria as we proceed through the legal system. Nigeria still belongs to us all, and we must work together to make sacrifices for its improvement.
