… calls on Nigerians to support the Renewed Hope Agenda
The national leadership of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) under the National Chairman, Alhaji Shehu Musa Gabam, has congratulated President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the validation of his electoral victory by the Supreme Court.
The Apex court had on Thursday, October 26, 2023, affirmed Tinubu’s election as the President.
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Amb. Rufus Aiyenigba, SDP commended Supreme court justices for dealing with the contentious issues in an unimpeachable fashion, thereby, deepening the nation’s political jurisprudence and people’s faith in democracy.
The SDP called on all Nigerians, particularly the political class, to rally the essential solidarity and support for the President in his efforts to rebuild the country through the well-thought-out Renewed Hope Agenda.
“We also use this momentous occasion to call on Mr President, who is renowned as a true democrat and a celebrated Nigerian patriot, to enhance implementation of strategic national retrieval economic policies, and also to keep expanding the frontiers of national development programmes by being deliberate and intentional in reinforcing national unity, integration, and economic revitalization,” the statement said.
The SDP also expressed great confidence in President Tinubu’s statecraft, capacity and commitment to engender good Nigerian society and achieve noble legacies, particularly his manifest disposition to strengthen our electoral system by delivering free, fair and credible off-season governorship elections in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States in the next two weeks.
While calling for all hands to be on deck on this journey to build a new and strong Nigeria, SDP called on the legislature, judiciary, media, all segments of the society, and essential building-blocks of the country to work in harmony with the President to fast-track the return to national productivity so as to achieve a great Nigeria for all.
Finally, the SDP called the attention of the President to the prevailing economic hardship that Nigerians are currently going through at the moment.
“This is prevalent in all classes and categories of people and across all communities. The President therefore needs to bring to the fore, very quickly, his ingenuity, innovative solutions, famed economic management skills and wealth-creation acumen by deploring strategic, broad-based people-centred economic programmes and social welfare interventions to significantly ameliorate the current economic crisis and declining standards of living.”
