GOVERNOR Ademola Adeleke has congratulated President Bola Tinubu on the affirmation of his election by the Supreme Court, saying the time to unite for Nigeria is now.
Trojan News Media recalls that the apex court on Thursday dismissed the appeals of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP), and their presidential candidates in the last election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr Peter Obi.
The duo had challenged the victory of President Bola Tinubu at the February 25 poll and sought to overturn the declaration of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The Supreme Court, however, dismissed the appeal, holding that new evidence could not be introduced at the stage of appeal.
In a congratulatory message issued by his spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, in Osogbo, Adeleke said “Our judicial system has once again proven itself in tackling disputes that arise from our elections”.
Adeleke, who noted the finality of the apex court ruling on disputes on the 2023 presidential election, said the resolution of the questions that surrounded the election would bring about focus in confronting the many challenges facing Nigeria.
He commended the main opposition candidate in the election for deepening the country’s electoral jurisprudence by testing their complaints at the court of law.
“On behalf of the good people of Osun State, I congratulate President Tinubu on his judicial victory at the apex court.
“It is my hope that your administration will bring progress, unity, and prosperity to our nation, and I want to restate my commitment to partner with you in offering good governance for our people,” he said.
