Muhammadu Buhari and Godwin Obaseki

The President, Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday, congratulated Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on his victory at the state governorship election held on Saturday, The PUNCH reports.

Obaseki, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu of Buhari’s All Progressives Congress at the poll.

The President, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, commended the electoral process that saw the Independent National Electoral Commission declaring Obaseki winner.

In the statement titled “President Buhari commends election process in Edo State reiterates commitment to free and fair elections,” Shehu quoted Buhari as reiterating his commitment to credible elections.

In congratulating Obaseki, the President was further quoted as urging him to “show grace and humility in victory.”

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.

“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 commended the people of the state, the political parties, candidates, and security agencies for conducting themselves responsibly.
