The executive Governor of Sokoto state and a member of the People’s Democratic Party Aminu Tambuwal have sent a congratulatory message to President Buhari following his Victory over PDP’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar at the Supreme Court.
Calling for the President to be magnanimous in his victory in a statement issued on Thursday by his spokesperson , Malam Muhammad Bello , the Governor further urged President Buhari to run an inclusive government and strive to forge a true Nigerian Nation and spirit.
“This is a time for circumspection and rallying of Nigerians for the arduous task of tackling our huge developmental challenges.
“This is also a time to run an inclusive government and strive to forge a true Nigerian nation and spirit,” he said.
Commending Atiku for his doggedness, the governor added that the supreme court verdict had put an end to the long term legal battle between Buhari and Atiku.
“I want to specially commend Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for his doggedness, tenacity and strong belief in the judicial process.
“His stance has contributed in no small measure in advancing our democracy. He is without doubt an icon of democracy. His place in Nigeria’s democratic journey is assured.
“Therefore, I urge our party members not to be dismayed, the legal way has a terminal stage. The verdict of the Supreme Court is final, in politics you win some and lose some.
“Since our presidential candidate chose the legal way, it is a clear indication that he is not a supporter of resort to self-help, or violence, after all power comes from God and He alone gives it to whom He wishes at His own time and on His own terms.”
It will be recalled that News Agency of Nigeria had on Wednesday reported that all contentions over the 2019 presidential election were dismissed on Wednesday by the Supreme Court in the appeal filed by the PDP presidential candidate.
