He therefore congratulated the Senate President for his heartwarming victory at the CCT and called for the support of Nigerians to the National Assembly to enable the lawmakers fastrack the development of the country through passage of bills and robust legislation that would have positive impact on the people.

According to him , the outcome of the CCT trail would further energies and strengthen the Senate President to do more for the nation's democracy through robust legislation at all levels of democratic rule adding that the truth shall always prevail no matter how long.

The APC chieftain called for unity among the people of KWARA state irrespective of their political or religious leanings and commended the large heart and mind of forgiveness demonstrated by the Senate President for all those behind the travails he went through throughout the period of his persecution in the last two years.
