Fayose Salutes Buhari, Urge Nigerians To Accept Presidential Poll Result
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has hailed President Goodluck Jonathan and the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), for their fighting spirit in the ongoing presidential poll.
In a statement on Tuesday, Fayose, however, stopped short of congratulating the APC candidate for his likely victory in the poll.
Fayose’s statement by his Special Adviser on Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka, reads,
“Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has urged Nigerians to accept the outcome of the Saturday presidential election in good faith, saying; ‘the election result is the will of God and Nigerians , and all lovers of peace, progress and development of Nigeria must accept it’.
“Governor Fayose, in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, hailed the resilience and commitment of President Goodluck Jonathan and General Mohammadu Buhari (retd).
“The governor said the election results should not been seen as victory or loss for any political party, adding that ‘To me, Nigerians and democracy won’.
“He praised Nigerians for believing in the democratic process, adding that ‘By this election, Nigerians have shown that Democracy has come to stay in the country’.
“The governor said, ‘I salute Nigerians, especially the great people of Ekiti State. I salute President Jonathan for laying the most solid foundation for democracy in Nigeria. And I salute Major General Buhari for being a resilience and dogged fighter.
“I urge Nigerians, irrespective of their ethic, religious and political affiliation to respect the outcome of the election in the interest of peace, progress and development of the country.
“Nigeria as a country is greater than any individual or group and it is my plea that no one should do anything to rock the boat of peace in the country.”
