President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola on the ruling of the Supreme Court on Friday affirming his victory at the September 2018 Governorship poll.
“The apex court’s decision lays down the tussle over the Osun State governorship and removes all burdens on the governor’s path from fully providing democracy dividends to the good people of the state,” said Buhari in a State House statement on Friday.
The statement, signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, added, “President Buhari commends Osun’s government and the people for enabling the rule of law to run its entire course, urging them and security agencies to maintain peace.
“He calls on the victorious governor and ruling All Progressive Congress Party to be magnanimous in victory and make as necessary concrete steps towards inclusive governance.
“President Buhari also reflects the ongoing desire of the Federal Government to partner with the State Government to improve the livelihood of citizens.”
