  • Buhari Congratulates Bello, Says Go To Court If You’re Not Happy With His Victory.

    Governor Bello

    President Buhari has congratulated Governor Yahaya Bello, the winner of Kogi State Gubernatorial election. Governor Bello pulled 406,222 to defeat his closest rival, the PDP’s Musa Wada who scored 189,704 votes.

    In his congratulatory message the President expressed delight in Bello’s victory while urging all aggrieved opponents to go to court.

    In words: Congratulations to Governor Yahaya Bello on his re-election. It was a race well run and a victory well won. I urge him to see his renewed mandate as another opportunity to build on the foundations already laid towards improving the lives of the people of Kogi State.

    I commend INEC and the security agencies for discharging their responsibilities under difficult conditions. The violence that took place, and loss of lives, by thugs doing the bidding of their political sponsors, is condemnable. There is no room in our democracy for electoral violence.

    I commiserate with the families and loved ones of all those who lost their lives. All political actors and stakeholders must take deliberate steps to eschew electoral violence as a peaceful and orderly process is vital to our quest for enduring democracy.

    Let me enjoin Governor Bello to imbibe the spirit of magnanimity in victory by extending a hand of partnership to opposition candidates, and also ask that all those dissatisfied with the outcome of the election should, in seeking redress, approach the courts.
