Bayo Onanuga, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, has expressed hope that the Supreme Court will affirm the president’s victory in the February 25 presidential election.
Onanuga made the remark in reaction to the Supreme Court’s announced date to give its verdict on the appeals filed by presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and Labour Party, LP’s Peter Obi.
