The pan-Yoruba socio-cultural and political organisation, Afenifere, has congratulated President Ahmed Bola Tinubu on his victory at the Presidential Electoral Court (PEPC), stressing that the judgment will deepen democracy.

In a press statement signed by the organisation's National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Jare Ajayi, Afenifere quoted its leader, Pa Reuben Famuyide Fasoranti, expressing delight at the victory of President Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima at the judgment given on Wednesday.

The congratulatory message from Afenifere stated that the judgment, which further validated the electoral victory of February 25th, should be seen as an indication of growing democracy in the country. It also highlighted the challenge it poses on the present administration to actualize the promises contained in the Renewed Hope manifesto presented to Nigerians in 2022 and 2023.

"As indicated in our congratulatory message when you, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was declared winner of this year's presidential election, your victory raises a lot of hope and you cannot afford to fail Nigerians.

"Incidentally, your manifesto on how to reset Nigeria resonates with my vision for having a Nigeria of which we all would be proud - as we mentioned on the two occasions our leader last year in Akure."

The statement stressed that President Tinubu's steps so far have shown a commitment to setting the country on a sound footing for progress.

Afenifere leader noted that the withdrawal of fuel subsidy has caused pains to Nigerians and should be soothed quickly so that "Nigeria can begin to enjoy life more abundant and the good welfare that they deserve".

Afenifere commended all the parties involved in the petitions, stating that their choice of going to court was part of the process of deepening democracy in Nigeria.

"For instance, the petitions gave the judiciary the opportunity to make far-reaching pronouncements on some important aspects of the nation's electoral law and aspects of the Constitution that deal with election matters.

"The pronouncements by the eminent judges shed more light and enlighten us more on how to go about our electoral processes," Afenifere stated.

The organization also encouraged politicians to learn from the verdict, so that they would be better guided in their future electoral activities.

Afenifere saluted Nigerians, the judiciary, and all those involved in the judicial processes for the peaceful manner in which the matter was handled.

It urged all concerned to now brace up for proper governance "so that Nigerians would quickly put the present hardship behind them and begin to experience improved standards in their welfare, while the country embarks on a fast-paced journey towards becoming a developed nation.

"Restructuring and proper federalization of the country should form important aspects of the rejigging to be effected," the statement concluded.
