President Muhammadu Buhari congratulated his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, on the Supreme Court judgment that confirmed the elections for Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State and Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State on Monday .
The President, congratulated the APC National Executive Council, the NEC, the National Labor Committee, the NWC and all members, for their loyalty and consistency that resulted in many victories, especially in the politically strategic states, Kano and Plateau, after difficult legal challenges.
The President said: “I am happy that this tortuous journey has ended in favor of the party and our governors. APC beat the United States and proved it in court. It would have been a major blow if strategically important states like Kano and Plateau were lost. & # 39; & # 39;
While congratulating all APC governors that the Supreme Court held their elections, President Buhari urged voters and politicians to strengthen the country's judicial processes, always seeking redress in court.
“It has now become standard procedure for the opposition to contest any research or judgment that does not return its candidates.
“The election is good when they win. The opposite is the case if someone else appears. But that's not how it works. Democracy is not just about who wins or who loses, but also about the process. By depreciating all unfavorable results or judgments, they depreciate the entire system. "
