Oseni say this in his congratulate message the Governor after the affirmation of his November 16th 2019 Governorship victory by the Supreme court today 31st of August 2020 in Abuja.
Oseni said "I want to use this opportunity to congratulate the entire people of Kogi State and most especially my ever faithful constituents for the resounding victory of His Excellencies, Governor Yahaya Bello and his Deputy, Chief Edward David Onoja at the Supreme Court.
"The mandate given to the duo in the November 16th 2019 gubernatorial election was first of all validated by the Kogi State Election Petition Tribunal, affirmed by the Appeal Court and today, re-affirmed and sealed by the Supreme Court of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
"These trends of victory were not happenstance, rather it was the collective resolution of the people of Kogi State who having critically assessed the sterling performance of the Governor in the first tenure, decided to give him another chance to do more for the Confluence State.
"To the best of my knowledge, any democracy without opposition or dissenting tunes is tantamount to dictatorship which is globally frowned at.
It is in this regard that I call on members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state and the teeming supporters of our dear Governor to celebrate the victory with utmost caution. Members of the opposition parties who sought clarification or redress in the various courts have played their parts in deepening democracy in Nigeria and Kogi State in particular.
"Ladies and gentlemen, this judgement to me is didactic. If you find yourself in position of power, do what is required of you in the office without ethnic, religious or petty sentiments. The detribalized stance of Governor Yahaya Bello and his Deputy, Chief Edward David Onoja which was encapsulated in the now popular EBIGO mantra has paid off. Kogi State has once again set an indelible template for leadership recruitment process in Nigeria as leaders are no longer elected/chosen based on tribal, regional and religious factors.
Once again, congratulations Governor Yahaya Bello, his ever dogged team and the entire people of Kogi State."OMOKOSHABAN
