National Chairman/Coordinator of Team Prosper Shehu Bankole-Hameed has warned politicians trying to foment violence due to the declaration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the president-elect to desist.

Bankole-Hameed said the presidential election was free, fair and credible, adding that anyone that was unsatisfied with the outcome should seek redress in court

His words: “February 25, 2023 presidential election was adjudged very free and fair. With all human limitations, it had its errors but the errors did not call for the cancellation of the election nor did it invalidate the election. The election produced a winner in Bola Tinubu. Now, Asiwaju has received his certificate of return.

If anyone feels left out, they have the court to address it, not being on the street or on social media shouting or some pastors saying he is not their president. These are misleading. Pastors should not say things like that because it is unfair to mislead people. We have a President-elect and by the grace of God, he is Bola Tinubu.

The session presided over by Justice Bala Usman resolved that the name of Emmanuel Bwacha be published in the INEC portal if deleted as the governorship candidate in the March 11 elections.
