The Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Thursday, described the judgement of the Supreme Court panel that affirmed President Bola Tinubu’s victory as a “sound one” that would further deepen the country’s electoral laws and judicial jurisprudence.
In a statement by his spokesperson, Ismail Omipidan, the minister said the judgement had finally settled the legal battle over the 2023 presidential election, saying lovers of democracy must commend the resilience of the judiciary in deepening the country’s democracy through its sound judgments.
It read partly, “On behalf of the APC family in Osun, I congratulate our president, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the vice president, Senator Kashim Shettima, on their victory at the Supreme Court.
“Today’s judgement has put to an end the needless bickering, distractions and litigation that greeted the 2023 presidential election. It is my hope that the opposition will team up with our president to move Nigeria forward in the overall interest of the country.”
Similarly, Oluwo of Iwo in Osun State, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has also congratulated the President, Bola Tinubu, on his victory at the Supreme Court, which affirmed his victory in the 2023 presidential election.
Oba Akanbi, in a congratulatory message signed by his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, appealed to politicians to prioritize the interest of Nigeria, noting that the country is greater than any individual.
