Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 presidential election and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has commended the judgment of the Supreme Court “which has upheld the rule of law and done justice by declaring the PDP as winner of the gubernatorial election in Zamfara State as well as in the state’s House of Assembly elections.”
Atiku in a statement issued on Friday by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, said “nothing is as pleasing to the ears of believers, as justice being served in the holy month of Ramadan.”
He commended the Lord Justices for putting aside the interests of the powerful and upholding the interests of Nigeria and Nigerians, saying “God first, Nigeria second, must be our priority as trustees of the people.”
In the statement, the Wazirin Adamawa noted that “when justice prevails, the people rejoice, chains are broken, freedom is multiplied and society is enriched.”
Atiku expressed hope that the Supreme Court and the Lords Justices will let Lady Justice have
full reign in other petitions that will come before them, adding that good conscience, fear of God and the rule of law will prevail.
“In so doing, they will write their names for good on the sands of time and avoid the infamy that oppressors wish to thrust on them as their legacy.
He congratulated the Governor-elect Hon. Bello Matawalle and the people of Zamfara, who he said will finally have a government that will address the issues that have made life an ordeal in that great state.
“The storm is over and peace and calm are coming to Zamfara. May God bless the Supreme Court of Nigeria. May God bless Zamfara state, and may God bless Nigeria, now and forever,” the statement added.
