…Says Results Reaffirm FG’s Commitment To Fair Elections
President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State on his victory in Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
The President also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and national security agencies for ensuring that the elections were free, fair, credible and peaceful in keeping with the avowed commitment of his Administration.
President Jonathan also applauded the people of Osun State who came out en masse yesterday in all the local government areas of the state to peacefully and freely exercise their democratic right.
The President said he believes that a free, fair and peaceful conduct of the elections have fully reaffirmed his administration’s determination to positively reform Nigeria’s electoral processes.
According to him, “the outcome of the election has also given the lie to the false, unfair and uncharitable allegations that measures put in place by the federal government for the Ekiti and Osun State elections were partisan and designed to achieve a favourable outcome for his party.”
As Governor Aregbesola prepares to begin a second term in office, President Jonathan assured that he looks forward “to continuing to work with him and other state governors to further improve the living conditions of Nigerians in Osun and other states of the country.”
