Supreme Court Judgement: Buhari congratulates Oyetola on his victory.
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, congratulated Gboyega Oyetola, the Governor of Osun State, a few hours after the Supreme Court confirmed his victory as the winner of the September 2018 governorship poll.
In a statement released and signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, Buhari commended the Osun State indigenes and state government for allowing the rule of law to run its course and sustain peace.
“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.”
“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,” Buhari said.
Recall that Senator Ademola Adeleke had last week boasted of becoming the next governor of Osun State with high expectations of a favourable verdict from the apex court.
But his hope was dashed earlier on Friday when the Supreme Court ruling favoured the sitting governor, Oyetola.
