Share This Article on

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Tuesday, congratulated Senator Hope Uzodinma on his victory after the Supreme Court declared him the winner of the March 19, 2019 Imo State governorship election ahead of Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a state signed by Ola Awoniyi, Special Adviser (Media) to President of the Senate, and posted on the verified Twitter handle of Abubakar Sidiq Usman, Special Assistant to the Senate President on New Media, Lawan also congratulated the All Progressives Party (APC) in the state for peacefully retrieving its mandate through the constitutionally stipulated judicial process.

The Senate President said the unanimous decision of the seven-member panel of the highest court in the land has cleared any doubt on the victory of the APC in the election.

“This is a victory for democracy, the rule of law, the All Progressives Congress and the good people of Imo State.

“The new Governor-elect should be magnanimous in victory and see his mandate as a call to serve his people conscientiously and to the best of his ability,” he Lawan.

The Senate President wished the governor-elect a successful tenure in office.

He also praised the Nigerian Judiciary for reasserting itself as a sacred chapel for judicious resolution of disputes.
