Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has described his victory at the Federal High Court, Abuja, as the triumph of the rule of law, even as he said the litigation was unnecessary and an attempt to steal or truncate the will of the people through the backdoor.
In a social media post, Governor Obaseki wrote:
The verdict of the Federal High Court, delivered by Honourable Justice Ahmed Mohammed on the allegation of certificate forgery is well-received and a victory for the rule of law. The suit was a most needless attempt by desperate individuals trying to undo the will of the people through the backdoor but we are happy today that justice and truth have prevailed.
My profound gratitude goes to the judiciary who have stood indefatigably for truth and justice; the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR); my party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); our party leaders and members; my teeming supporters; the good people of Edo State and all Nigerians
