The Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, on Wednesday appealed to the opposition party to stop using election petition distracting President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a Press Statement signed by Donald Ojogo, the Commissioner for Information & Orientation, the governor said the main opposition, PDP and its Presidential Candidate, Abubakar Atiku had a right to approach the supreme court over their petitions but it was high time distraction in the polity stopped.

Congratulating the ruling APC and Buhari on their victory at the Presidential Election petition Tribunal, Ojogo said, “Mr Governor believes that, notwithstanding the right of the main opposition and its Presidential Candidate to test the verdict at the Apex Court, the right time for less distractions in our polity is now.”

“It is with a deep sense of responsibility that the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN joins numerous other Nigerians to congratulate our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and indeed, our dear President Muhammadu Buhari over this historic judicial victory. It is undoubtedly, a national victory for all Nigerians.”

According to Governor Akeredolu, the verdict exuded a combination of very enthralling components which have contributed in no small measure, to the Nation’s jurisprudence.

“The analytical precisions as well as the near-faultless conclusions have deepened judiciality.”

“The enviable industry collectively deployed by the revered Lordships also depicts great hope for Nigeria’s electoral process,” Akeredolu said.

“This is more so that, the current security challenges require a mere passing attention but a dexterous unanimity of purpose and national amity devoid of political colourations.”
