Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari, on his victory at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

Press reported earlier that the Justice Mohammed Garba,-led Tribunal dismissed Atiku and PDP petition in its entirety.

The governor rejoiced with the president in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Rafiu Ajakaye, on Thursday in Ilorin.

As stated by him, the judgment is a victory for the ordinary Nigerian People, who stood for many hours on queues to vote during the election.

He said that he was not surprised at the outcome of the tribunal verdict in view of the unprecedented support the president recorded in Kwara, and the glaring acceptability of his candidature across the country, NAN reports.

“I have always known that any legal challenge to his victory is just an academic exercise because the people have spoken clearly,’’ AbdulRazaq said.

As stated by the governor, the opposition had the right to seek legal redress on the outcome of the 2019 presidential election in the country.

“The judgment only affirmed the position of the people of Nigeria, who appreciate the discipline, integrity, patriotism, and commitment of Mr President to a better Nigeria,” the governor added.

AbdulRazaq also lauded the erudition of the president’s legal team, who he said remained focused “even in the face of everyday propaganda by the opposition’’.

He, therefore, called on Nigerian People across party lines to rally round the President to enable him deliver more dividends of democracy.
