The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday congratulated the Governor of Kogi State on his unanimous affirmation by the Supreme Court as the winner of the Kogi governorship election held in November 2019.
In a unanimous judgment on Monday, a seven-member panel of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Mohammed, had dismissed, for lack of merit, the appeals filed by governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP).
The party, in a statement by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, hailed the Supreme Court for defending the votes and mandate that the good people of Kogi State overwhelmingly gave to Governor Yahaya Bello to lead them for another four years.
“This victory will definitely buoy Governor Bello to focus on his administration’s commendable effort to ensure peace and guarantee security for the people of the state. Kogi State under Governor Bello is already one of the frontline states leading the agricultural revolution,” APC said.
The party called on all stakeholders to support the government in achieving the ongoing development initiatives, which would improve the fortunes of the state and people.
