Mohammed Kailani, a stalwart of the All Peoples Congress (APC), on Saturday called on the opposition presidential candidates to withdraw their litigations over the February 25 presidential election.
Recall that the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Mr Peter Obi, headed to the courts to challenge the victory of the APC candidate, Senator Bola Tinubu.
Kailani, National Coordinator, Voter Education and Awareness of the APC, told NAN in Kaduna that the withdrawal of the litigations would make way for national unity and development.
According to him, the litigants should place national interests above personal interests.
He said, “If they [Atiku and Obi] really love Nigeria, they should withdraw their cases from the court.
“Their efforts would only become efforts in futility and would not be beneficial to us as a nation.”
He added, “Thankfully, the president-elect [Tinubu] had promised to run a unifying government, a government of national unity that would give everyone a sense of belonging.’’
