President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki on Sunday over his re-election in the Governorship election.
In statement signed by signed by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari urged Obaseki to show humility in victory.
He further commended INEC for conducting a free and fair election in the state and also reinstate the government’s commitment to free and fair elections.
My commitment to free and fair elections is firm because without free and fair elections, the foundation of our political and moral authority will be weak,” he said.
“I have consistently advocated for free and fair elections in the country because it is the bedrock of true democratic order.
“Democracy will mean nothing if the votes of the people don’t count or if their mandate is fraudulently tampered with.”
Buhari further commended the people of the state, the parties, candidates and security agencies for conducting themselves responsibly.
