President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a congratulatory message to Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State on Friday’s Supreme Court ruling which affirmed his victory in the September 2018 governorship election in the state.
“The decision of the apex court lays to rest the tussle over the governorship of Osun State and removes all encumbrances on the path of the governor from fully delivering dividends of democracy to the good people of the State,” Buhari said in a press release signed by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, to the President.
President Buhari commends the government and people of Osun in allowing the rule of law to run its entire course, urging them as well as security agencies to sustain the peace.
He calls on the victorious governor and the ruling All Progressives Congress party to be magnanimous in victory and make concrete moves towards inclusive governance as may be necessary.
President Buhari also expresses the Federal Government’s continued willingness to partner with the State Government for the betterment of the people going forward.
