Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, says the victory of Kenyan President-Elect, William Ruto, at nation’s Supreme Court holds vital lessons of hope and courage to Nigerians.
Obi disclosed this while congratulating Ruto over the affirmation of his victory by the nation’s Supreme Court as the winner of the presidential election held last month.
Recall that Ruto was declared the winner of the just concluded presidential election in the East African country.
But Raila Odinga, Ruto’s rival, rejected the results alleging irregularities and went to court to contest the result.
However, Kenyan Supreme Court, in its unanimous judgment, dismissed the petition against Ruto’s electoral victory.
Taking to his verified twitter handle to congratulate Ruto, Obi wrote:
“I congratulate Kenyan VP @WilliamsRuto on the Supreme Court verdict upholding his victory in the Presidential elections. He has achieved a great feat and victory, both at the polls and in the courts.”
“By this verdict, it is a double victory in Kenya, for the national democracy and the integrity of the judiciary. The recent political events in Kenya that saw Ruto to victory, hold vital lessons of hope and courage to Nigerians, who are firmly focused on taking back their nation from the old order, for good”, he said.
