I want to wish Mr. President all the best, I want to congratulate the judiciary and all of us.and say to every Nigerians that it is time for us to roll off our sleeves,” Sanwo-Olu said.
The governor explained that the Supreme Court was historic and a beauty for the country’s democracy.
“It is a beauty of the power of inclusiveness in governance where every body would have an opportunity to express themselves at the highest level. As a people that is run and governed by a constitution, we all need to abide by this constitution
“The highest judicial body in our country has expressed themselves very clearly, there were no descending voices, there were seven of them that were on the same page.That tells us that whatever might have been the differences, let us put it behind us, it is a victory for all. I am sure the President must have alluded to that ,what we need to now,have, is clear governance,” The governor added.
