BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday hailed the Supreme Court for “defending the votes and mandate the people of Kogi State overwhelmingly gave Governor Yahaya Bello” to lead them for another four years.
The ruling Party also congratulated Governor Bello on his unanimous affirmation by the Supreme Court as the winner of the Kogi governorship election held in November 2019.
The APC noted that in a unanimous judgment on Monday, a seven-member panel of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Mohammed 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 its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, said that the victory at the apex court 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.
According to the APC; “Kogi State under Governor Bello is already one of the frontline states leading the agricultural revolution. We call on all stakeholders holders to support the government in achieving the ongoing developmental initiatives which will improve the fortunes of the state and people”.
