…Says It’s Time To Build Nigeria
Chairman of the Southwest Governors’ Forum and Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON, has hailed the Supreme Court’s ruling that dismissed the petitions challenging President Bola Tinubu’s election.
Governor Akeredolu hailed the verdict as a triumph for democracy and a testament to the overwhelming support given to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Tinubu by the majority of voters.
The Governor noted that the arduous 8-month legal journey has enriched the nation’s jurisprudence and deepened the democratic values.
“The Supreme Court’s decision has conclusively put an end to the long-standing legal dispute surrounding the 2023 Presidential Election, in which President Bola Tinubu emerged as the resounding winner.
“This judgment mirrors the collective will of the Nigerian people who voted overwhelmingly for the APC and President Tinubu, and it reinforces the confidence of the nation in our judiciary as the ultimate defender of the people’s interests.
“The extended legal process has further underscored the strength of our democracy. With the opposition exercising their constitutional rights, it is now time to unite with President Tinubu to build a new Nigeria.
“We firmly believe that Nigeria will continue to thrive under President Tinubu’s leadership. He is a dedicated, committed, and passionate leader whose unwavering motivation has always been the welfare of the Nigerian people,” the Governor stated.
Governor Akeredolu also called on political stakeholders to sheath their swords and allow the President to focus on delivering his “Renewed Hope” Agenda.
While extending his heartfelt congratulations to President Tinubu and his Vice, Kashim Shettima, Governor Akeredolu urged them to set aside distractions and concentrate on the task of rescuing the nation.
