Ogun state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has hailed the Supreme Court’s verdict upholding his election in the March 9 gubernatorial election in the state.
In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Kunle Somorin, the Governor described the verdict as not only a victory for the people but for democracy, the judiciary and an attestation to the awesomeness of GOD.
Governor Abiodun said the outcome justifies people belief that there was no reason for the election matter to have gone to the Supreme Court in the first instance.
The Governor congratulated the good people of the state the all Progressives congress and indeed all other parties that have shown support and solidarity for his administration despite fielding candidates in the same election.
He said with the ruling of the Supreme Court, which has finally laid to rest all concerns about him, and the propriety of his election, the present administration is extending hand of fellowship to the APM and others parties, urging them to join hands with the administration in moving the state to the next level of development.
Governor Abiodun said that the verdict will further challenge him to consolidate gains made so far in the state and inspire him to do more for the people whose mandate he will not take for granted.
