Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has hailed Governor Isiaka Oyetola Of Osun State for his “calm disposition, open-mindedness and inclusivenesson” prior to Friday’s Supreme Court ruling.

The Apex court had affirmed Oyetola’s electoral victory.

In a statement signed by the chief press secretary to the governor, Onogwu Muhammed, Governor Bello described the Supreme Court judgement as victory for democracy.

He, however, enjoined Governor Oyetola to extend hands of fellowship to his opponents and ensure that the state gets purposeful leadership.

“I have been an election tribunal down to the Supreme Court and can attest to the level of distraction a governor and his administration face on account of some needless litigation, but a calm disposition, open-mindedness and inclusiveness towards everybody; including those who instituted litigation against you, is what defines a true leader,” Bello said.

He urged Governor Oyetola to build on the policies that have defined him as a good ambassador of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while sustaining the programmes and developmental agenda of his state in line with the party manifesto.

He said after all the legal tussles, the lesson is to ensure that the citizens are repaid with good governance which is proof that their confidence in their leader was not misplaced.

Governor Bello noted that the ruling of the Supreme Court will go a long way in restoring the confidence and hope of the Nigerian people on the sanctity of the judiciary as the last hope of the common man and lauded the apex court for standing strong in the defence of the law and constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

He thanked the people of Osun state for standing behind their governor and listening to his call for calm and patience all through the duration of the legal journey and urged them to set aside political differences in the interest of the development of the state.
