The Federal House of Representatives has congratulated Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State on his victory at the Supreme Court.
This felicitation is contained in a statement signed by the House Spokesman, Hon. Benjamin Kalu, sent to sources on Monday, in Abuja.
Kalu, while hailing the leadership qualities of Ganduje, described the judgment as an assurance of another tenure of good governance for the people of Kano State.
“The leadership of the 9th House of Representatives congratulates the people of Kano State on the affirmation of the victory of their Governor, His Excellency, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje at the 2019 general elections by the Supreme Court.
“It is recalled that in addition to a successful first tenure, Governor Ganduje’s predilection for quality leadership was exhibited when he rallied the entire representatives from Kano State to vote for Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila in the last House leadership election.
“Indeed, the judgement of the Supreme Court assures Kano people of another tenure of good governance under the experienced hands of Governor Ganduje,” the statement said.
The House leadership, however, urged Governor Ganduje to be magnanimous in victory and to discharge the responsibilities of his mandate with utmost diligence.
The Supreme Court, on Monday, dismissed the application filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Alhaji Abba Yusuf, challenging the re-election of Ganduje in the Kano State 2019 governorship election.
