Chairman of the Northern States Governors’ Forum and Niger State Governor, Babangida Muazu Aliyu, has hailed President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat and congratulated Buhari for winning last Saturday’s presidential election.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Israel A. Ebije, Aliyu said the victory of the All Progressives Congress, APC president-elect, should be seen as triumph for Nigerian democracy and collective progress of the country.
He said the forum hailed President Jonathan for conceding defeat and for exhibiting the tenets of a true democrat, adding that history will remember him for his political maturity.
Aliyu also congratulated his colleagues who got elected to the National Assembly as senators and urged them to engage in national discourse in the best way possible to advance Nigeria’s democracy to the height it deserves and to serve the people with the best dividends of democracy.
He also urged his colleagues who have lost in their bid to the National Assembly to see it as an act of God, adding that they should always avail themselves for national duties as the outcome of this election must not affect their contribution to the progress and development of Nigeria.
“Let me on behalf of my colleagues in the Northern States Governors’ Forum congratulate the president-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari over his success at the presidential polls. It is indeed triumph for democracy and indeed the decision of Nigerians.”
“I also thank the president of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for accepting the outcome of the election. He has indeed shown he is a statesman and posterity will forever remember him for his decision to allow a free and fair election.”
He said Nigeria will fare better and grow stronger now that the people know their rights and have realised they have the power to decide their political fate. He congratulated Nigerians for the peaceful conduct of the election.
