Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State has congratulated Mr. Willie Obiano over his re-election as governor of Anambra State.
In a statement issued in Sokoto yesterday by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal noted that Obiano’s victory was a manifestation of the people’s trust and confidence in his leadership.
He urged the Anambra Governor to rise above partisan consideration and carry along all people, including his opponents, in the task of building the state.
“I urge His Excellency to see the fresh mandate given to him as a call to extra duty in the service of his state and an immense opportunity to carry forward the policies and projects initiated during his first term so as to promote progress and development in Anambra State,” Tambuwal stated.
While appealing to those who lost in the election to accept the result in good faith and cooperate with the winner in the interest of the people, Tambuwal advised that any decision to challenge the outcome of the election should be limited to the confines of the law.
He pledged the cooperation of Sokoto State Government to the re-elected governor, saying his administration would work with any person and interest groups to promote democracy in the country.
