President Muhammadu Buhari has recognised the Supreme Court verdict on the governorship election in Osun as well as the important role of the judiciary in deepening democracy and the rule of law.

The president stated in a statement by his media aide, Femi Adesina, on Tuesday in Abuja.

Mr Buhari said with the apex court’s verdict, the main task is to make the people feel the impact of good governance, where a prosperous, peaceful and stable Osun is guaranteed.

He, therefore, urged all the state residents to give the government of Ademola Adeleke all the support it needed to ensure that programmes, policies, plans and aspirations fashioned to make individuals and businesses flourish succeeded.

“Elections should be seen as the path to an end, which is the progress of the people in a peaceful environment, rather than unending bickering.

“This is the time for inclusion and harmony in the state at the end of the litigation,” he said.

Mr Buhari thanked the Osun people for their immense contribution to the nation’s development, particularly through the state’s rich cultural heritage, the several historic sites and tourist attractions, including Osun Osogbo Sacred Grove, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

He assured that the federal government would continue to develop the boundless resources in the state to enhance national development and prosperity.
