Former Bayelsa Senator, Ben Murray Bruce has urged Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to accept the olive branch extended by the President.
This is coming on the heels of the Supreme Court verdict which trashed Atiku and Obi’s appeal against the victory of the President and other issues.
Reacting to the judgment, Murray-Bruce, in a public statement opined that the verdict of the Apex Court had laid to rest all litigation issues.
The Silverbird executive frowned at Nigerians who say “Tinubu is not my President” describing the statement as “frivolous and unhelpful”.
In his words:
“All the talk by some persons that ‘Bola Tinubu is not my President’ is frivolous and unhelpful,” he said.
“As long as you call yourself a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, you do not have ‘your’ President.
“Nigeria has a president, and whether you like it or not, he presides over you as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and head of the state,
“The Peoples Democratic Party must now play their role as Nigeria’s most viable opposition party.
“It is incumbent on them to work on unifying their ranks. Disunity and treachery against President Goodluck Jonathan cost them the 2015 election.
“Disunity also cost them this election. If they allow it to repeat itself a third time, they are done.
To the youths of Nigeria, do not allow anybody, whether candidate, party, or television station, to set you against the government.
“The future is yours, as millennials, not ours, the fifties and sixties generation. Use it well. Organise now for 2027, or agonise when it is 2027.”
