Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi on Thursday plead Ex Vice- President Abubakar Atiku and other opposition figures to team up with President Muhammadu Buhari in the task of building a new Nigeria.
Fayemi made the call in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, in Ado Ekiti on Thursday.
The governor said the call became necessary now that the controversies surrounding the actual winner of the 2019 Presidential Election had been settled by the Supreme Court.
He congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on the Supreme Court’s verdict which re-affirmed his victory at the poll, describing it as “a victory for democracy”. Fayemi said the Supreme Court’s verdict had put an end to the legal battle over the 2019 presidential election, by re-affirming Buhari as the validly elected President of the country.
The governor described the Supreme Court verdict as a reaffirmation of the mandate freely given to Buhari by the electorate during the Feb.23 Presidential Election.
