The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the ruling of the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal which upheld the victory of Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde.

In a statement on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party described the ruling as victory for democracy, justice and the people of Oyo State.

It noted that the jubilant atmosphere across the state following the verdict was a clear testimony that the judgment fulfilled the desires and expectations of the people of the state.

“The people of Oyo state are particularly overjoyed with the judgment because of Governor Makinde’s demonstrated capacity and commitment to deliver good governance in all sectors of life in the state,” the PDP said.

Congratulating the governor and the people of Oyo, the party commended Governor Makinde for his zeal in repositioning the state.

It, however, urged him not to relent in his vision to turn around the fortunes of the people.

The PDP also thanked the members of the Tribunal for their courage in delivering justice.
