The apex court on Friday morning affirmed that Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated Senator Ademola Adeleke in the September 2018 governorship election.
Reacting to the judgment, Buhari in a statement via his spokesman Femi Adesina, urged Oyetola to give the people of the State the dividends of democracy.
“The decision of the apex court lays to rest the tussle over the governorship of Osun State and removes all encumbrances on the path of the governor from fully delivering dividends of democracy to the good people of the State,” the statement added.
It noted that “He [Buhari] calls on the victorious governor and the ruling All Progressives Congress party to be magnanimous in victory and make concrete moves towards inclusive governance as may be necessary.
“President Buhari also expresses the Federal Government’s continued willingness to partner with the State Government for the betterment of the people going forward.”
