The Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN, has joined numerous other Nigerians to hail the verdict of the Supreme Court which upheld the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR.
According to Mr. Governor, the real victory of the legal process belongs to Democracy.
His words: ”At last, the seeming suspense over the 2019 Presidential Election and its attendant legal issues has come to an end. The pronouncement of the Nation’s Apex Court as regards the petition remains a very welcome development.
While congratulating President Buhari as well as the All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Akeredolu equally salutes all those whose belief in the Judicial System strengthened their resolve to find solace rather than resorting to untoward measures.
”This is courage worth celebrating. In this regard, we, as a Nation, has collectively earned an enviable reputation for Rule of Law and constitutionalism.
“The entire chain of the legal processes has been exhausted.This is even as litigants from all sides have had a profound opportunity to ventilate their arguments up to the Supreme Court.
”It is heartwarming that the legal fireworks terminating with today’s verdict are products of our Constitutional rights which have been expressed to enrich democracy. No doubt, the real victory belongs to Democracy,” the governor says.
