Kanu State Governor, Umar Ganduje reacting to the Supreme Court ruling which affirmed him as the rightful elected Governor of the state has commended the Judiciary for defending the Nation’s Democratic Culture.

According to the governor, the Judiciary has truly shown to Nigerians that they are indeed the last hope of the nation’s sustainability of the democratic norms and values.

Ganduje while urging all the oppositions to come and join hands with him for the continued development of the state, further went on to thank Allah for the victory.

He said: “We thank Allah for the victory, for making it possible for the Supreme Court to reaffirm our victory after Election Petition Tribunal and Court of Appeal judgements. We also thank Kano people for their peaceful conduct in their affairs”.

He praised the people who prayed for his victory, stating that, “Whoever believes and depends on Allah, will always see light at the beginning, mid and end of the tunnel, no matter the circumstances.”

“We also commend all the Judges who partook in this exercise of deepening democracy. This shows the commitment of our judiciary in strengthening our democracy. This is highly commendable,” he said.

“I insist that our opposition should come and join us to move the state forward. We have a lot of developmental projects on ground. And more are coming. Our free and compulsory education policy needs all hands on deck. Our security system also needs all and sundry, among others,” he said.
