Following the victories affirmed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday, December 18, some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been congratulated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
In his congratulatory message to the APC governors, President Buhari expressed his joy over their victories in what he called legal battles, Nigerian Tribune reports.
The president said that it is now time for the governors to work hard and ensure that they make good all their campaign promises to those who voted them into power in the various states.
As he charged the governor to strive and deliver the dividends of democracy in the next four years, he prayed that God's guidance and wisdom will be with them.
