The senator-elect for Anambra central senatorial zone, Mrs Uche Ekwunife has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for showing spirit of sportsmanship in the just concluded Presidential election by accepting the outcome of the results and congratulating his closest rival, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
She also thanked the people of Anambra central senatorial district for their overwhelming support in 28th March National Assembly election in the state.
Ekwunife in a statement signed by her media aide, Emmanuel Uzor described her victory at the polls as the manifestation of the general wishes of the masses that have been yearning for proper and quality representation especially at the highest chambers of the National Assembly.
“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 advice him to toe the line of Mr. President who conceded to defeat, he (Victor Umeh) should concede 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 to 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.”
The senator elect further described President Jonathan as the author of Nigerian democracy, adding “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 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.
