Buhari congratulates APC governors on Supreme Court victories 

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday congratulated All Progressives Congress (APC) governors on their Supreme Court victories, after what he called “your patient legal battles to defend your mandates.”

A statement issued by Garba Shehu, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), quoted the President as saying: “I am pleased and proud that you have successfully concluded your legal battles, and now is the time to concentrate fully on fulfilling your campaign promises after the distractions caused by the litigations.”

According to President Buhari, “One of the great things about democracy is that it gives us avenues for redress through the courts,” adding that “I am pleased that you used this opportunity to defend your mandates.”

He, however, advised the governors not “to see their challengers as enemies because they were exercising their democratic rights by going to the courts to seek redress.”

President Buhari reminded the APC governors that there are still challenges ahead.

“With the legal battle now over, it is my hope that you won’t rest on your oars. You should work ever harder to deliver good governance in the next remaining four years of your tenure. I wish you God’s guidance, more wisdom and good health in the performance of your exalted responsibilities.”
