Taraba State Governor, Agbu Kefas has called on the New Nigeria Peoples Party to stop wasting their resources and accept the verdict of the state governorship election petition Tribunal of Saturday.
He made the appeal on Sunday as an aftermath of the three-man panel who dismissed the petition brought by NNPP and its governorship candidate, Professor Sani Yaya for lack of merit, and affirmed that Kefas was the duly elected governor of the state.
The governor opined that the opposition party and its governorship candidate should accept the judgement in good faith and join him in the strive to develop Taraba state, according to the Nigerian Tribune.
According to him, a prolonged legal battle would only deplete the resources that would have been channelled for the development of Taraba to improve the lives of the citizens.
“I wish to commend the judges for their dedication to the course of justice during the proceedings and their unwavering commitment to fairness, honesty and uprightness in strict accordance with the law. The judges’ conscience reaffirmed the strength of the democratic institution.
“I wish to state here that there are invaluable lessons to learn from the past, and I appealed to the opposition party and its governorship candidate, Professor Sani Yaya, to accept the judgement in good faith and join me in the strive to develop Taraba state.
“Prolonged legal battle would only deplete the state’s resources that would have been channelled for the development of Taraba to improve the lives of the citizens,” the governor appealed.
