President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is unhappy following a Supreme Court judgement stopping the All Progressives Congress (APC) from participating in all elections in Rivers State
The president expressed his view during the APC mega rally in Rivers State on Tuesday.
President Buhari said, “I am very disturbed by the decision that we are not allowed to participate in some of the processes. I have no doubt that I got elected but I have to respect the institutions that I inherited. I assure you and I recommend that you remain patient and resolute. We will ensure that justice is done in this country.”
The ruling of the Supreme Court indicated that the APC has lost a total of 50 elective positions including 32 House of Assembly seats, 13 House of Representatives positions, three senatorial positions and governorship and deputy governorship seats.
Buhari, however, begged the electorate to “bear with him” as he continues to fix the country.
He also promised that he would deploy the armed forces and the police in the state to ensure that all Nigerians are allowed to vote without intimidation.
