The founder, Silverbird Group, Ben Murray-Bruce has urged Nigerians to unite and face the task of rescuing the economy, especially the Naira and undoing the damage the previous administration did.
The former senator while sharing his thoughts concerning the state of the economy on his Twitter handle, now X platform expressed his concern on the supreme court verdict and the state of the nation as the Supreme Court is expected to deliver the judgment it reserved on the two appeals that are seeking to nullify the election of President Bola Tinubu.
On the expected outcome, he urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the last general election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his counterpart, the candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi, to accept the next Thursday’s Supreme Court judgement.
While advising them to synergise to restore and revive Nigeria’s economy and Naira, he also appealed to the parties involved to accept whatever verdict the Supreme Court would come up with.
Atiku and Obi are challenging the declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, was the valid winner of the presidential election held on February 25.
He also went further to emphasise that the country cannot be in election mode forever. In his words, “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.”
Ben Murray-Bruce has also represented the Bayelsa East Senatorial District, in Bayelsa State.
