Obiano receives certificate of return, reiterates commitment to good governance

Obiano Did the people really speak

THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has appealed to the Court of Appeal ruling, which mandated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct fresh election in Anambra Central Senatorial District.

"I wish to thank Mr. President, INEC, security agencies and all those who made the election a success".

Buhari in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, yesterday urged INEC to improve on areas of logistics as the nation braces for coming governorship elections and the main general elections in 2019.

Presenting the certificate to Obiano, the state REC urged the re-elected governor to live up to expectations and continue to develop the state.

While calling on those who lost the election to join him in moving the state forward, the governor said "this is the moment, I'm very happy to be here to pick my certificate of return with my deputy, Dr. Nkem Okeke to run the affairs of the state for the next four years". It added that going into the 2019 electoral process, the positives from the Anambra governorship election would boost confidence in Nigeria's ability to deliver free, fair, and credible elections.

"We are going to make sure that Anambra continues to shine, I'm not going to fail with my deputy and the people of Anambra, we are going to work harder in making sure that our victory was not in vain".

Obiano had defeated his opponents including APC and PDP in the keenly contested election.
