The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State on his victory at the State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.
The party described the verdict as a victory for democracy and the inevitable triumph of the will of the people.
In a statement on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party described the affirmation of the governor’s election as “well-deserved”.
It stated that the people stood their ground in the March 23 governorship election, despite attempts by “forces that sought to foist themselves” on the state.
The PDP believes Tambuwal’s victory at the election was a clear endorsement of his leadership style as evinced in his commitment towards the development of the state and the empowerment of the people.
“Indeed, Governor Tambuwal’s achievements in developing the state and empowering the people in all critical sectors of life stood him out in his first term.
“His re-election, therefore, marks the determination of the people to consolidate on good governance in their state,” the party said.
