THE People Democratic Party (PDP), Anambra Governorship candidate, Hon Oseloka Henry Oboze, has reacted to the re-election of Governor Willie Obiano in Saturday’s Guber election.
This is contained in a statement his media, Chima Christian made available to ReportersAtLarge on Monday.
Obaze, who congratulated Willie Obano on his victory, also hailed other co-contesters.
His remarks in full text: “Good Afternoon. I wish to congratulate My Brother, HE Gov Willie Obiano and his running mate Dr Nkem Okeke on their victory at the 18 November elections. I wish both of them well and fruitful Administration.
I salute my other fellow candidates for their valiant efforts and the decorum during the campaigning. Thank you for given peace a chance in the State.
Before now, I have expressed concerns about the contradicting variables that led to the electoral outcome. In that context, INEC needs to undertake an introspective reappraisal of its in-house processes, more so those relating to its ICT operations. Beyond these remarks, I have closed the chapter on this particular election. We must now move on and return to the task of promoting good governance and the wellbeing of Anambra people.
I salute my wife and children, my personal and campaign staff, our National and State party leadership, especially the PDP governors for their support. God bless them all.
“I thank in a very special way former Gov Peter Obi and his dear wife Margaret Obi for their unfettered support. I also thank my running mate Lady Chidi Onyemelukwe and her husband Okey Onyemelukwe for their joint role, warmth and added value to our efforts.
In conclusion, and on a sad note, I close by paying tribute to a father figure, my father’s friend, my mentor, and the father of my running mate, Dr Alex Ifeanyi Ekwueme, who passed last night. May his soul find eternal rest; and may his family, friends, and Nigeria find the fortitude to bear this huge loss.
Thank you and God bless us. Bless Anambra and Bless Nigeria.
