Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has congratulated Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, on his victory at the November 6, 2021, Anambra State governorship election.
Ortom’s congratulatory message was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur.
According to the statement, the governor described Prof Soludo’s victory as a true reflection of the wishes of the people of the state and not the machinations of some individuals or groups outside the state.
Governor Ortom commended the dogged determination of the Anambra people from the beginning of the campaign till the final declaration of the results to overcome intimidation, coercive threats of force and uphold their wishes, and express their franchise by freely electing their choice.
He also commended the security agencies deployed in the state for maintaining law and order, before, during, and after the conduct of the polls with no known cases of violence.
The Governor equally lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, stating that they also deserve commendation for the credible conduct of the polls without yielding to external pressure to frustrate the will of the people of Anambra State.
He noted that the outcome of the election in Anambra is a pointer that democracy will flourish when all agencies and participants play according to the dictates of the process guiding the democratic principles.
Governor Ortom prayed that God will guide the Anambra State Governor-elect to enable him to serve the people faithfully to actualise his vision for the state.
