The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State has congratulated President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory at the Presidential Election Petition, describing the victory as “well deserved” and the judgement “very sound”
In a statement issued in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, on Wednesday and signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye, the APC remarked that “we had no doubt that Asiwaju won that election massively and decisively; that was well known to the world. The petitioners were only at the Tribunal to use that as a trick to hold on to the remnants of their followers and to also rabble-rouse.
“The petitions as we have seen, are entirely incompetent and time-wasters. We must also commend the judges for the detailed judgement that lasted several hours. The judgement is not only detailed, but also sound. It is a judgement that will serve as reference point for decades to come for lawyers, politicians, scholars and all other people interested in electoral litigations.
“We must not fail to commend the audacious courage of the judges who stood their ground and on the side of justice despite harassment, intimidation and blackmail by opposition party supporters and their infantile antics.”
