Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 23, 2019 election, Mr. Peter Obi, has felicitated with Governors Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State and Samuel Ortom of Benue State, both of whom won re-election during last Saturday’s supplementary governorship elections.

“These victories, which I expected and which are well-deserved, are in recognition of the people’s love for our great party, the PDP, which has impacted positively on the lives of ordinary Nigerians and greatly enhanced Nigeria’s democracy.

“I heartily rejoice with our worthy electoral ambassadors – Their Excellencies Aminu Tambuwal, Samuel Ortom and Bala Mohammed,” Obi said Monday in a statement by his media office.

He prayed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare Senator Bala Mohammed of PDP winner of the Bauchi State governorship election. “We are anxiously waiting for his declaration having won the election, and in view of the dismissal, on Monday by the Federal High Court Abuja, of APC’s suit challenging INEC’s decision to resume collation of results in the Bauchi governorship election,” Obi said.

He called on Nigerians “to know that our democracy is in dire straits and that all must work hard to rescue it as that is the foundation to build the Nigeria of our dreams.”
