Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state has applauded the Supreme court judgement that dismissed the appeal of the people’s Democratic Party, PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and affirmed President Muhammadu Buhari as the duly elected president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Reacting to today’s judgement, Governor Yahaya congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the Governing All Progressives Congress, APC as well as all Nigerians of goodwill, observing that with the judgement, the apex court has now laid to rest all the legal tussles, paving the way for the president to continue to face the task of building the nation and moving the country to the next level of development and prosperity without any distraction.
The Governor hailed the ruling as affirmation of president Buhari’s overwhelming victory and the vindication of the people’s massive support for the president and the APC at the February 23, 2019 general election.
He also applauded the judiciary for serving justice through a transparent delivery which he said will help deepen the judicial process and dispensation of justice in Nigeria.
“On behalf of myself, the Government and people of Gombe state, I wish to join the APC family, numerous well- wishers and lovers of democracy in Nigeria and the world over, to congratulate our dear president and the leadership of our great party for the supreme court judgement”.
“This is indeed a victory for democracy and for the overwhelming majority of Nigerians who stood under the sun and in the rains and voted the president and his party, APC”. He said.
