Today is a great day in our nation Nigeria. The status quo was challenged and in the end, the Nigerian spirit won. The nation spoke, clearly and President Jonathan listened. This is democracy in action. I doff my hat to Mr President on the unique show of statesmanship. He has set the stage for what Nigeria needs, a smooth transition built on the foundation of healing and reconciliation.
I want to on behalf of my supporters, the Rivers State Labour Party and myself, warmly congratulate the President Elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on his victory at the polls. His patience, consistency and courage is worthy of emulation and a message for us all. Though we supported President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan; Nigeria chose Buhari. We are democrats, glad to accept a President given to us by God and therefore pledge our loyalty to the success of his administration.
I call on all Nigerians to stand by the President, as he completes his tenure. He promised to ensure the credibility of elections in order to further strengthen the country’s democratic institution; that he has delivered and that is the greatest achievement in Nigeria’s democracy and the legacy he will leave. We lost a good man today but we've found a stronger nation.
God bless Nigeria
(Rivers State Labour Party Guber Candidate)
