Gov. Umaru Bago of Niger, has felicitated President Ahmed Bola Tinubu as the Supreme Court upheld his election victory.
The governor, in a congratulatory message by his Chief Press Secretary, Bologi Ibrahim, issued in Minna on Thursday said truth and justice had prevailed.
He said that with the verdict of the Supreme Court, “the coast is finally cleared and arguments laid to rest.”
Bago, who expressed confidence in the ability of the administration of Tinubu to deliver more dividends of democracy to Nigerians called on all and sundry to give the administration the needed support and prayers.
The election of Tinubu was challenged by some of his opponents at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) where he emerged victorious.
Unsatisfied by the verdict, the opponents appealed the ruling, which had been upheld by the Supreme Court on Thursday, laying to rest every litigation about the 2023 presidential election..
