President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, saved him from going into trauma while awaiting the outcome of the judgement of the presidential tribunal.

The election tribunal upheld President Buhari’s victory at the February 23 presidential election, after a petition was filed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, challenging President Buhari’s victory.

President Buhari who stated this when he received Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who came to congratulate him on his victory at the tribunal, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said he was “unperturbed all along.”

A statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, quoted Buhari as saying: “Good conscience fears no evil report. I was unperturbed all along, because I knew Nigerians freely gave us the mandate. We are now vindicated.”

“On this judgement, 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 judgement. 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 ours 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.

In his remarks, the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu said the judgment has silence Buhari’s critics.

He said:  “We are here to celebrate your victory and that of our party at the tribunal. I say big congrats to you. We don’t know how it happened, but it was televised live for Nigerians to see for transparency. It silence all doubts. We never doubted your positions and now the law has affirmed it too.
