By Faith Awa Maji, Katsina
The Katsina State Governor, Malam Dikko Umaru Radda PhD, has hailed the judgement of the Supreme Court of Nigeria which affirmed the election of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the valid winner of the February 25, 2023 presidential election.
Governor Radda in a congratulatory message to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, described the verdict by the Apex Court, which dismissed the appeals of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and that of Peter Obi of the Labour, LP challenging the verdict of the
Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, PEPT, which had earlier
affirmed President Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election as victory for democracy.
Radda, said the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling is not just a legal victory for President Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, APC, but for all Nigerians and lovers of democracy around the world.
He said the victory at the highest court in the land reflects the
resilience of the institutions in Nigeria to entrenching democracy and the rule of law that Nigeria remains the epitome of democracy and freedom in Africa.
The Katsina State Governor stressed that the victory of President Tinubu at the Supreme Court is a clear reflection of the minds of millions of Nigerians that exercised their franchise in February to chart a course for Nigeria with a renewed hope.
Governor Radda called on all Nigerians and particularly the duo of
Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi along side their supporters not to see the verdict as a personal loss but contributions to deepening democracy in Nigeria urging them to unite behind
President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima as they stir Nigeria
towards sustainable growth and development.
He said, by coming together we can build a prosperous nation under peace and unity.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Katsina State Governor, Ibrahim Kaula Mohammed said Governor Radda has on behalf of the Government and people of Katsina State, felicitate with Mr President, and assures him of his unwavering support as he leads the nation with a renewed hope to greatness.
