Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has lauded the unanimous ruling of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) affirming President Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s election, asserting that it mirrors the aspirations of the largest segment of eligible voters.
In a press release issued by his Chief Spokesperson, Rafiu Ajakaye, from Ilorin on Thursday, Governor Abdulrazaq, who is currently on an official visit to India with the President, extended his congratulations to Tinubu, emphasizing that “the verdict attests to the integrity of the electoral process and the fact that the outcome aligns with the desires of the vast majority of eligible voters.”
Governor Abdulrazaq also praised the PEPT for adhering steadfastly to the constitution and not succumbing to pressures and threats driven by baseless allegations of electoral misconduct.
“In the final analysis, our democracy has been enriched and the right of Nigerians to freely elect leaders of their choice equally upheld as all issues were clinically examined and resolved in line with all relevant laws. The judgment is a triumph of truth,” the Governor said.
“We have no doubt that this decision of the PEPT will strengthen the resolve of the President to continue to deliver on his campaign promises to the good people of Nigeria.
“We promise to continue to work with Mr. President and his great team in the task of building a stronger economy, a safer nation, and a happier people,” the statement added.
