Igbawase Ukumba in Lafia
Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has asked losers in the state governorship election to take their grievances to court and seek redress.
Sule gave the advice at the Lafia office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) shortly after he received his Certificate of Return as the winner of the state gubernatorial election.
He said: “I urge those who feel aggrieved to take their case to court and seek redress. Elections in Nigeria are always accompanied by challenges, with losers often accusing the winners.”
The governor, however, expressed gratitude to the people of the state for voting him, maintaining that his victory was made possible by their support.
He stated further that his administration had been fair and transparent, hence commending security agencies for their role in ensuring peaceful elections in the state.
Sule noted with joy that Nasarawa State had recently made history by discovering its first oil well in Obi Local Government Area, which according to the governor, “was a happy moment for the state”.
He, however, called on stakeholders in the state, especially members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who had defected to the opposition, to cooperate and work together with him in order to move the state forward.
