By Jude Atupulazi
The Vice Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 23, 2019 election, Mr. Peter Obi, has felicitated with Governors Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State and Samuel Ortom of Benue State, who both won re-election during the March 23 supplementary governorship elections.
‘These victories, which I expected and which are well-deserved, are in recognition of the people’s love for our great party, the PDP, which has impacted positively on the lives of ordinary Nigerians and greatly enhanced Nigeria’s democracy.
‘I heartily rejoice with our worthy electoral ambassadors – their Excellencies, Aminu Tambuwal, Samuel Ortom and Bala Mohammed,’ Obi said Monday in a statement by his media office.
He also prayed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare Senator Bala Mohammed of PDP winner of the Bauchi State governorship election.
‘We are anxiously waiting for his declaration, having won the election, and in view of the dismissal, on Monday by the Federal High Court, Abuja, of APC’s suit challenging INEC’s decision to resume collation of results in the Bauchi governorship election,’ Obi said.
He called on Nigerians to know that her democracy was in dire straits and that all must work hard to rescue it as that was the foundation to build the Nigeria of their dreams.
