Governor Nwifuru, commended the nation's judiciary for their sincerity and unbiased stance in the dispensation of justice. He also appreciated the the All Progressive Congress and his campaign Council, the Divine mandate campaign Organization, for galvanizing support that led to his victory at the 2023 guber polls.

"The judgement which was delivered by the erudite judges has finally nailed the protracted legal battle, challenging the sincerity of purpose, courage of conviction, equity, fairness and justice, the fulcrum which our coming to power is hinged.

"Notwithstanding, I want to say, it is a win-win for all of us who vehemently opposed the mercantile politics that nearly shattered our shared vision as a people. Therefore, I congratulate us all. 

The Governor expressed that the judgment calls for not only jubilation but celebration because it has brought to an end, attempts to truncate the wish of the people.
