The former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has reacted to the ruling of the Supreme Court that sacked the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State, David Lyon.
The former Governor of Kwara State also congratulated the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Douye Diri over his victory at the Supreme Court.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission on Friday declared Diri and his Deputy as the winner of the Bayelsa governorship election.
The chairman of the commission, Prof Yakubu Mahmood, noted that PDP fulfilled more than 25 per cent of the lawful votes.
Saraki while reacting to the development on Twitter called on PDP members to take advantage of the court ruling to reconcile with their members.
He wrote: “I congratulate Senator Duoye Diri and Senator Lawrence Ehrudjakpor on being declared as the Governor-Elect and Deputy Governor-Elect of Bayelsa State.”
“I pray Allah will give them the wisdom to deliver on the wishes and aspirations of all Bayelsans.”
“Last year, I served as Chairman of the Committee set up by @OfficialPDPNig to pursue reconciliation within our ranks in Bayelsa. I make this appeal knowing that only genuine reconciliation will give us the foundation to fully deliver on our campaign promises to the Bayelsan people.”
