Ben Bruce Cautions Against Rancour After Supreme Court Judgment

Former Senator Representing Bayelsa West, Ben Bruce, has said there must not be anymore political rancour after the judgement which the Supreme Court will deliver on Thursday concerning the 2023 presidential election.

The apex court will deliver its verdict on the appeals brought against President Bola Tinubu’s victory at the February 25 presidential election.

The appeals were filed by former vice president Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, of the Labour Party.

Both men want the Supreme Court to set aside the verdict delivered by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on September 6.

Ahead of Thursday’s judgment, Ben Bruce shared on X, “Whatever the judgment of the Supreme Court tomorrow, I hope that all parties to the election and the appeal accept it because the Supreme Court is final. After tomorrow, there must be no more political rancour. We should all unite and face the task of rescuing the economy, especially the Naira and undoing the damage the previous administration did.

“We cannot be in election mode forever. Governing mode must now begin in earnest. We can resume partisanship in four years. From tomorrow, our squabbles must no longer be with each other but against insecurity, criminality, economic hardship and disunity.”
