A pan-Nigerian organisation, Diamond-Crest for Youth Education Foundation, has called for the withdrawal of all court cases by individuals and groups on the 2015 general elections for smooth transition and hand-over on May 29.
It particularly urged those who are aggrieved on the just-concluded presidential and National Assembly elections to withdraw all pending or outstanding suits that might directly or indirectly impede a smooth handover to the incoming government.
The foundation in a statement by its president, Mr. Gideon Onyedi, enjoined all Nigerians, irrespective of their political and religious affiliations, to embrace and identify with the change that had taken place in the nation’s political configuration and scheme of things.
According to the statement, this remains one of the ways to ensure continued progress and peaceful co-existence in the country.
“We also, with all seriousness, sense of patriotism and responsibility, call on everyone involved in litigations and court cases related to person(s) involved in the just-concluded presidential elections to withdraw all pending/outstanding court cases that may directly or indirectly impede a smooth transition and handover on May 29, 2015.
“Democracy is about the will and decision of the people. Nigerians have spoken with unprecedented passion.
“Anything that will undermine that expressed passion, no matter how that thing is perceived from an angle, shall largely and generally be viewed undemocratic and dangerously anti-climactic.
“We therefore urge everyone to maintain this democratic spirit”, the statement pleaded.
The Foundation also lauded the courage and gallantry of President Goodluck Jonathan in accepting defeat and congratulated the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.
“Let everyone maintain that spirit and not to descend into any self-serving, parochial, unpatriotic act,” it advised.
