President Muhammadu Buhari, has charged the Governors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to settle down and fulfill their campaign promises to their Constituents.
Buhari gave the charge in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, on Friday.
Congratulating the Governors on their victories at the Supreme Court, recently, the President observed that the electoral litigations had been distractions to the Governors.
He added that the victories have provided them opportunities to roll out the dividends promised to the people.
He said: “I am pleased and proud that you have successfully concluded your legal battles, and now is the time to concentrate fully on fulfilling your campaign promises, after the distractions caused by the litigations.”
According to President Buhari: “One of the great things about democracy, is that it gives us avenues for redress through the courts”, adding that: “I am pleased that you used this opportunity to defend your mandates.”
He advised the Governors not “to see their challengers as enemies, because they were exercising their democratic rights by going to the courts to seek redress”.
Buhari reminded the APC Governors that there are still challenges ahead.
“With the legal battle now over, it is my hope that you will not rest on your oars.
“You should work even harder to deliver good governance in the next remaining four years of your tenure.
“I wish you God’s guidance, more wisdom, and good health, in the performance of your exalted responsibilities”, he stressed.
