Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 presidential election and former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has commended and celebrated the judgment of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, which has upheld the rule of law and done justice by declaring the PDP as winner of the gubernatorial election in Zamfara State as well as in the state’s House of Assembly elections.
The Adamawa born politician disclosed this in a statement on Friday, May 24, signed and delivered to The Atlantic Post by his Media Adviser, Mazi Paul Ibe.
“Nothing is as pleasing to the ears of believers, as justice being served in the holy month of Ramadan,” Atiku said.
He commended the Lord Justices for putting aside the interests of the powerful and upholding the interests of Nigeria and Nigerians. “God first, Nigeria second, must be our priority as trustees of the people.”
“When justice prevails, the people rejoice, chains are broken, freedom is multiplied and society is enriched.”
Atiku Abubakar also expressed hope that the Supreme Court and our Lords Justices will let Lady Justice have full reign in other petitions that will come before them, and that good conscience, fear of God and the rule of law will prevail.
“In so doing, they will write their names for good on the sands of time and avoid the infamy that oppressors wish to thrust on them as their legacy.
O”nce again, Atiku Abubakar commends the Supreme Court for siding with justice. He congratulates the Governor-elect Hon. Bello Matawalle and the people of Zamfara, who will finally have a government that will address the issues that have made life an ordeal in that great state. The storm is over and peace and calm are coming to Zamfara.
“May God bless the Supreme Court of Nigeria. May God bless Zamfara state and may God bless Nigeria, now and forever,” Atiku added.
