The apex Urhobo youth body, Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, Youth Wing, has congratulated the President-elect Gen. Muhammad Buhari (retd) on his victory in the just-concluded elections.
A statement by the spokesman of the body, Mr. Marcus Ekure, described the election as the freest, fairest and most credible election that Nigeria has ever had.
Expressing confidence in Buhari’s capacity to deliver on his manifesto, he described the President-elect as an exemplary leader with exceptional qualities, impeccable pedigree and antecedence.
He also commended the sportsmanship of President Goodluck Jonathan, saying it takes a selfless and visionary leader to concede defeat, especially in Africa.
He, however, recommended that Jonathan be considered for a Nobel Laureate award and a lifetime ambassador of the United Nations and African Union so as to rank among the likes of Nelson Mandela of South Africa.
