President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Godwin Obaseki on his re-election as governor of Edo State.
The President who commended the election process in Edo State, restated the government’s commitment to free and fair elections. He also urged Governor Obaseki to continue to show grace and humility in victory.
His congratulatory message was issued in a statement signed by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Shehu Garba.
“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.”
