The former Senate President of Nigeria, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has congratulated the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last Patigi by-election, Salihu Yahaya Muhammad, following his victory on Monday at the National and State Election Petition Tribunal.
Saraki on the micro-bloging site, Twitter, said, “A big congrats to candidate of our party @OfficialPDPNig for the State Assembly By-Election held in Patigi, Kwara State on 14th March 2020. Hon. Salihu Muhammad Yahaya has just been declared winner by a tribunal.
“I also congratulate all our stakeholders for their steadfastness.”
