The president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has said that he was happy to be occupied during the tribunal ruling as he would have been traumatized.
He made this known when the All Progressives Congress Governors Forum and the National Working Committee of the ruling party led by its national Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole paid him a congratulatory message at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said this after he’d earlier released a statement which said that he was unbothered by the process as he was confident in his election victory .

The President was however thankful to have been occupied by the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC meeting which he said helped him keep his mind off the ruling.
The President said,
“On this judgment, again it was a fabulous coincidence that it came almost the same time the first Federal Executive Council meeting of this government was taking place. It lasted about the same time with the judgment.
“I thank God for that because I think would have gone into trauma or something. So I was busy trying to concentrate on the memo. The first memo was on the budget and it took more than five hours.
“So, while you were doing your thing for nine hours, we were doing our for about seven hours here. It is a very interesting coincidence and I thank God for it because I would have been in trauma or something of that sort.
“So thank very much for sharing the glory with us. What I will say to your congratulations the chairman of the party and the governors is that we make sure that we really institutionalized the party, so that when we leave the stage the party will continue to lead.”
