No one stole your mandate- Tinubu supporters tell Atiku, Obi
Hundreds of Tinubu supporters took to the street of Abuja in defense of the outcome of the 2023 general election warning the opposition parties against agitating for the imposition of an Interim National Government ING in the country.
The supporters who went under the aegis of “The Natives” specifically told the Presidential Candidates of PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and of LP, Mr. Peter Obi to drop such advocacy.
Also, they hailed the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu for conducting a free, fair, and credible election, declaring that nobody’s mandate was stolen.
Furthermore, the Tinubu supporters vowed to resist any attempt to institute an interim government, warning that the spirit of June 12 which saw the announcement of the late Moshood Kashimawo Abiola’s mandate is upon the nation.
While addressing journalists before they marched to the INEC headquarters, ‘Supreme Leader of the Natives’, Hon. Smart Edwards, appealed to the international community and Nigerians to allow democracy to grow by declaring their support for the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
In addition, he said that no mandate was stolen. “It was either you (opposition parties) did not network with your people and Nigerians well, or your people did anti-party against you.
Today, we have witnessed PDP suspending its National Chairman, the man who campaigned for the party, that’s also a democracy.
“It is our turn, The Natives of Nigeria to see a better Nigeria. It is our turn to see a working Nigeria. It is our turn to see a democracy that works. It is our turn to advance the country as patriots.” He said.
Furthermore, he disclosed that they will be marching to INEC headquarters to tell the commission that no mandate was stolen.
For him, Asiwaju won the election and it remains so. Only the tribunal and Supreme Court can change the decision of INEC.”
