Bent’s Statement to Atiku and Peter Obi

“Engaging in a legal tussle on the widely adjudged most credible election will amount to only unnecessary distraction to hold down the process of leadership to thrive.

“The presidential election results were a true reflection of Nigerians honest votes , you don’t need to waste your time and resources.

“Going to court will lead them in exercise in futility with no positive impact in the judiciary and democratic systems.

“I believe in the duo style of leadership, the ticket will unite us more than the thinking of many who are selfish to look at it from the religious point of view,” she said.

“I wish them good tenure in office, I know in their ticket Nigerians will smile again,” Bent added.
