All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in Delta State, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, has congratulated Nigeria’s President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) and Vice-President Elect, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on their victory at the presidential poll.
Emerhor, in a statement by his Director of Media and Political Communication, Dr. Fred Oghenesivbe, described the Buhari/Osibanjo victory as divine and well deserved democratic phenomenon which the supreme God mysteriously crafted to bring positive change to the socio-economic fortunes of the country.
Emerhor said that Gen. Buhari and Prof. Osinbajo are a combination that will turn around the economic fortunes of Nigeria for the benefit of Nigerians and the entire black continent. He called on Nigerians to join hands with the APC and its leaders to collectively benefit from the dividends of democracy which eluded Nigerians during the 16 years of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, misrule.
He said: “The wishes and aspirations of the Nigerian people to elect responsible and prudent political leaders at this critical time of our nation’s quest for economic remodeling have been expressed through the power of the ballot box,” pointing out that the “great light” has finally sparkled on our country and now ready to take the centre stage in progressive world affairs.
He commended the Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, for his courage in the way he conducted the 2015 presidential election and insisted that in Delta State, votes were manipulated by agents of the PDP in collaboration with some INEC officials.
He urged the INEC boss to use his good office to fish out the bad eggs at the INEC office in the state.
