Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has urged former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar to join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari to build a new Nigeria.
The Governor made the call today, October 31, 2019, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, in Ado Ekiti.
Governor Fayemi stated that it was important for Atiku and other opposition figures to team up with the President after the controversies surrounding the 2019 Presidential Election had been settled by the Supreme Court.
He offered his congratulations to President Buhari, calling the Supreme Court’s ruling “a victory for democracy” and commending the judiciary for its boldness and resilience in strengthening the country’s democracy through sound judgments.
This is good for our democracy. It is a victory for democracy. This victory is not for the All Progressives Congress (APC) alone. It is a victory for all well-meaning Nigerians. The people have spoken in a clear tone and the judiciary has re-affirmed the will of the people.
On behalf of the government and good people of Ekiti state, I congratulate our President, Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, the leadership of APC and entire citizens of our dear country on this victory.
I believe that the verdict of the apex court has put to an end to all the distractions occasioned by agitations about the 2019 presidential election.
While we congratulate the leadership of the APC, we urge the opposition to join the President in the task of building the country and taking it to the next level of socio-economic developmentGovernor Kayode Fayemi – pmnewsnigeria.com
