President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the people of Anambra State, the governorship candidates, the Independent National Electoral Commission, election observers as well as security agencies and other stakeholders, on the peaceful conduct of the November 18 gubernatorial election.
President Buhari in a statement described the outcome of last Saturday’s election in Anambra State as a manifestation of the electoral reform, which has begun to bear fruits in the country.
He particularly expressed delight at the conduct of the candidates on the post-election results, describing it as “heart-warming and a renewal of confidence in the sanctity of the ballot which deepens the nation’s democracy.”
Buhari in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, urged INEC to improve on areas of logistics as the nation braces for coming governorship elections and the main general elections in 2019.
President Buhari while congratulating Governor Willie Obiano on his re-election, urged him to rededicate himself to building on his achievements that endeared him to the electorate and swayed the overwhelming majority of votes in his favour.
He assured him that the Federal Government is ready to work with him for the greater harmony, peace and development of not only Anambra State but also the entire country.
