President Muhammadu Buhari has sent congratulatory messages to all governors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who came out victorious after various legal battles with opposing parties.
in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, President Buhari said, “I am pleased and proud that you have successfully concluded your legal battles, and now is the time to concentrate fully on fulfilling your campaign promises after the distractions caused by the litigations.”
He noted that “One of the great things about democracy is that it gives us avenues for redress through the courts.”
He, therefore, added that he is pleased that the governors used this opportunity to defend their mandates.
However, he added that “With the legal battle now over, it is my hope that you won’t rest on your oars. You should work ever harder to deliver good governance in the next remaining four years of your tenure," he said.
He further urged the governors not “to see their challengers as enemies because they were exercising their democratic rights by going to the courts to seek redress.”
The President prayed for God’s guidance, more wisdom, and good health in the performance of their responsibilities.
