Save yourselves resources – Yahaya Bello tells Atiku, Obi not to appeal tribunal verdict

GOVERNOR Yahaya Bello has urged the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and that of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to concede defeat and save themselves the resources and “trouble” of approaching the Supreme Court.

Both candidates have since announced their decisions to challenge Wednesday’s judgement of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal upholding the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 vote.

However, Bello told State House Correspondents in Abuja yesterday that Atiku and Obi are better off moving on and supporting the Tinubu administration.

“As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think there’s any ground for appeal,” the governor said.

“I would rather appeal to them that they should drop any appeal going to the higher court and then save the resources, save the trouble, advise their supporters, admonish them that we should accept yesterday’s judgement. No flaw.”
