The Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Salihu Yakubu Danladi has congratulated the State Governor, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq over his victory at the Kwara State Election Petition Tribunal.
Recall that the tribunal, on Friday dismissed the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate, Razaq Atunwa seeking the nullification of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq’s election over alleged certificate forgery.
Hon. Danladi, in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Ibrahim Sheriff stated that the victory was an expected triumph as according to him, it was obvious that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had embarked on a wild goose chase.
“We were never in doubt of your coming out victorious, owing to the overwhelming support your candidacy and now mandate enjoy.
“It was obvious and glaring to all that the PDP already resigned to fate knowing they were roundly rejected by Kwarans, but was relying on a wild goose chase.
“Your Excellency Sir, on behalf of the 9th Kwara State House of Assembly, I felicitate with you and charge you to continue discharging your duties as a truly people oriented Governor, while reassuring you of the unwavering support of the legislature towards the revival of our lost glory and setting Kwara on the path to greatness”, the statement said.
The Speaker advised the PDP and its governorship candidate to be issue-based and pro-people moving forward, if they want to be taken seriously by the citizenry.
