Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Tambuwal, has congratulated President Goodluck Jonathan and President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, over the successful conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections.
In a recent press statement issued by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal described the election as a watershed in the history of Nigeria.
He said the will of the majority of the people, as expressed in the results of the election, should be respected.
Tambuwal said by conceding defeat, President Jonathan had written his name in gold and will be remembered for playing a critical role to douse tension in the aftermath of the election.
While urging the President to ensure a smooth and successful transition, the Speaker equally tasked the President-elect to carry all Nigerians along in the new dispensation.
“As I have always maintained that there is time for politics and there is time for governance. Politicking is over and we must accept that fact,” he stated.
Tambuwal added that special mention must be made of Professor Attahiru Jega and his colleagues at the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC for their doggedness in the face of mounting pressures.
He commended the international community, the media and civil society organisations for their support and urged them to ensure the success of the remaining elections scheduled for April 11, 2015.
