Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Thursday congratulated President Bola Tinubu, on his victory at the Supreme Court, which validated the president’s win in the February 25 presidential polls.
Sanwo-Olu, via a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, said the judgment reaffirmed the people’s mandate, which was freely given to Tinubu to lead Nigeria from May 29, 2023 to May 29, 2027.
The governor, who expressed his delight at the Supreme Court’s ruling, urged the opposition to join hands with the President to move the country forward.
According to him, the country has reached the final stage of the political journey, which started over a year ago.
He said: “Today’s verdict by the Apex Court in Nigeria has ruled and stated unequivocally that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“I will enjoin all Nigerians, especially the opposition parties to join the President in his desire to take Nigeria out of her present situation to where we want it to be.
”Everyone should contribute their quota for the development of Nigeria, because we don’t have any other place we can call home except Nigeria.”
Sanwo-Olu also applauded the judiciary for standing up for the truth and for protecting the country’s fledgling democracy.
He enjoined Nigerians across party divides to team up with President Tinubu, to deliver the real dividends of democracy to Nigerians through the Renewed Hope agenda of the incumbent administration.
The governor said that the Supreme Court’s verdict was a victory for democracy and the rule of law.
