Presidential Tribunal: It Is possible that the court can confirm Tinubu's victory -Christopher Sarki

Christopher B. Sarki, a former Route Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and National Chairman of the Coalition to Strengthen Democracy for Good Governance Initiative (CSDGGI), believes that President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory can be validated by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

In an interview with the national newspaper, THE SUN, Sarki acknowledged discrepancies during the presidential election held on February 25th. He praised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for successfully conducting the election and announcing the results. He emphasized the importance of collective efforts to maintain democracy in Nigeria.

In his own words:

“Yes, it is possible that the court can confirm Tinubu’s victory in its judgment, even though there were a lot of discrepancies during the presidential election. But the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) did its best to conclude the election and result announced.”

“All hands must be on deck to ensure that democracy is sustained in Nigeria because whatever the challenges Nigerians and Africans are facing under democracy, we must keep moving forward because the only best form of government is democracy.”

Regarding the Federal Government’s proposed measures to address challenges resulting from the removal of fuel subsidy, Sarki expressed concerns about entrusting the palliatives to governors. He mentioned the lack of trust in state governors due to their hoarding of essential items during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, which were meant to support vulnerable Nigerians. Sarki also stated that palliatives alone would not allete poverty and hardship, asserting that fuel prices would continue to rise until local refineries are repaired.

Sarki expressed his disapproval of the quick ultimatum given to the coup leaders by ECOWAS in response to the crisis in Niger Republic. He advised President Tinubu, who is the Chairman of ECOWAS, and other leaders in the area to consider diplomatic means of engaging in dialogue with the coup plotters. Sarki proposed that if peaceful methods were unsuccessful, ECOWAS could consider using force to remove the junta.
