President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his rivals in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, among others, have been urged to come together and move Nigeria forward.

The Oba of Lagos, Riliwan Akiolu, made this plea during an interview with The Punch, from the United Kingdom.

Recall that the Supreme Court on Thursday, October 26, 2023, upheld Tinubu’s electoral victory at the February 25 election. The apex court affirmed the decision of the tribunal, which dismissed the petitions by Atiku and Obi challenging Tinubu’s victory.

Reacting to the development, Oba Akiolu said politicians should be more focused on the welfare of the people.

“Many things are happening to our country. Politicians don’t fight, they will settle later. All of them should come together and move Nigeria forward,” the Oba said.
