…As PDP Congratulates Sokoto Governor
The Sokoto State Election Petition Tribunal has affirmed the victory of Aminu Tambuwal as Governor of the state, Aminu Tambuwal, even as the Peoples Democratic Party-PDP has congratulated the Governor on his victory.
The PDP, in a statement signed by the Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan described Governor Tambuwal’s victory as victory for democracy.
The statement reads in part:
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congratulates Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal for his well-deserved victory at the Sokoto Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which upheld his election on Wednesday.”
“The party describes the verdict as victory for democracy and inevitable triumph of the will of the people, as expressed in the March 23 governorship election, over forces that sought to foist themselves on the state.”
“The PDP notes that Governor Tambuwal’s resounding victory at the election was a clear endorsement of his leadership style as evinced in his commitment towards the development of the state and the empowerment of the people.”
“Indeed, Governor Tambuwal’s achievements in developing the state and empowering the people in all critical sectors of life stood him out in his first term. His re-election therefore marks the determination of the people to consolidate on good governance in their state.”
“The PDP however rejects the judgments of the governorship election tribunal in Kano and Plateau states.
It nevertheless urges its teeming members and supporters not to lose hope as the tribunal is not the end of the road adding that justice will surely prevail at the end of the day.”
