Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial election in Niger State, Alhaji Umaru Nasko has congratulated the state governor-elect and the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Alhaji Sani Bello, over his victory.
Nasko noted that “my aspiration was borne out of a fervent desire to move our state to the next level of development following a robust foundation that has been laid by the previous democratic dispensations. I have worked tirelessly and timelessly too for this. I will not despair; I will continue to do this even outside government.
“For now the people of our dear state have decided and I submit to their decision, which though not in my favour but for my co-contestant and brother, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello of the APC, for I believe he has the interest of the state, just like me, at heart.
“My hearty congratulations to him and his team for the success recorded. I urge him to always put the interest of the people and the state first above all.”
He thanked all those who participated in the process, “from INEC, the voters, to party members, and especially members of his campaign team who worked day and night without break to sale the programmes and manifesto to the electorate; my family, the PDP, my supporters, friends, colleagues, well wishers, elders, the youth and women from whom I enjoyed my greatest support. I appreciate every one immensely. In this, we all are winners one way or the other.
“And to my leader and governor, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu CON (Talban Minna) I say thank you for believing in me; I know he wanted the best for me and the state but Allah knows what is best for us all. Please accept my highest esteem and respect.”
