Muhammadu Buhari

Following the declaration of the result of the Edo State Governorship elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission,  (INEC) President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his congratulatory mesage to the winner.

Buhari commended the election process in Edo State which led to the victory of Governor Godwin Obaseki as declared by INEC.

The president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, in a Tweet on Sunday said Buhari also “commended the people of Edo State, the parties, candidates and security agencies for conducting themselves responsibly.”

In his reaction to the outcome of the election as announced by INEC, President Buhari said: “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.”

The President added: “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,” he said in a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on media and publicity.

He commended the people of Edo State, the parties, candidates and security agencies for conducting themselves responsibly.
