The All Progressives Congress ( APC), Oyo State chapter, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and Professor Yemi Osinbajo over their victory at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Recall that the apex court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, which challenged the victory of President Buhari in the February 23 presidential election.
The tribunal had earlier ruled in favour of the All Progressive Congress and its presidential candidate, with the Peoples Democratic Party declaring the verdict as unsatisfactory before proceeding to the Supreme Court.
The apex court has now given its final ruling on the case by striking out Atiku and his party’s application.
A letter written by the Oyo State APC, which was signed by the APC Publicity Secretary, Dr Abdul Azeez Olatunde, reads: “On behalf of the leader of the Party in Oyo State, former Gov. Abiola Ajimobi, the State APC Chairman Akin Oke, the State Executives and all members of APC, we congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and other.”
However, PDP has rejected the court’s verdict, as its presidential candidate has stressed that democracy has been buried and the Nigerian Judiciary is being controlled by cabals.
