Edo 2020: Buhari commends electoral process, congratulates Obaseki

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the electoral process in Edo State which led to the victory of Governor Godwin Obaseki as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The president’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a Tweet today said Buhari also “commended the people of Edo State, the parties, candidates and security agencies for conducting themselves responsibly.”

In his reaction to the outcome of the election as announced by INEC, President Buhari said: “My commitment to free and fair elections is firm, because without free and fair elections, the foundation of our political and moral authority will be weak.”

“I have consistently advocated for free and fair elections in the country because it is the bedrock of true democratic order.

“Democracy will mean nothing if the votes of the people don’t count or if their mandate is fraudulently tampered with,” he said in a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on media and publicity.
