Senator-elect for Anambra central senatorial zone, Mrs. Uche Ekwunife has thanked the people the senatorial district for their overwhelming support at the March 28 National Assembly election in the state.
Ekwunife as well commended President Goodluck Jonathan for showing sportsmanship in the just concluded presidential election by accepting the outcome of the results and congratulated his closest rival, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ekwunife in a statement signed by her media assistant, Emmanuel Uzor, described her victory at the polls as the manifestation of the general wishes of the masses that had been yearning for proper and quality representation, especially in the Senate.
“It is surprising that my opponent, Chief Victor Umeh after losing election which I won on free and fair grounds is still opening his mouth to talk. If the election in Anambra central zone is conducted a million times, I will still beat him because the people chose me above every other contestant in the election. I advise him to toe the line of Mr. President who conceded to defeat.
“I want to commend Mr. President for the sacrifice he made for Nigeria, keeping his words. He deserves to be commended for rising above self and considering the country first. Nigerians have come the realization that what Mr. President has been saying that his ambition doesn’t worth blood of any Nigerians has been true and we have to hold him in a very high esteem for this uncommon show of sportsmanship and this goes a long way to show the type of person he is and history will judge him right.
“President Goodluck Jonathan domesticated democracy in Nigeria and should be commended for conducting a free, fair and credible general election in the history of Nigeria’s democracy.”
She, however, called on the president-elect, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, to be magnanimous in victory by seeing all parts of the country as his primary constituency and to consolidate on the already achieved gains of the outgoing administration.
