The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has listed vital lessons the victory of Kenyan President-Elect, William Ruto, has taught Nigerians.
Obi was reacting to Ruto’s victory in the presidential election and at the Kenyan Supreme Court on Monday, after his rival, Raila Odinga, rejected the results and went to court to contest the victory.
However, in its unanimous judgment, the nation’s apex court dismissed the petition against Ruto’s electoral victory and affirmed his election.
In a tweet via his verified Twitter handle on Monday, Obi congratulated Ruto and the people of the nation over the affirmation of his victory by the court.
The former Governor of Anambra State said the affirmation of Ruto’s victory holds vital lessons of hope and courage to Nigerians.
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.”
