Former Imo State Governor, Hon Emeka Ihedioha, has commended the people of Anambra State whom he said “resisted efforts to compromise their conscience and unequivocally expressed their preference for their choice candidate”
In a statement, Ihedioha described the victory of the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Prof Charles Soludo, as hard earned, stating that “the outcome of the Anambra State governorship election has again proven that power belongs to God and dispensed at the pleasure and for the good of the people”
He noted that the nation’s democratic process is improving, just as he commended the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC “for the introduction of Biometric Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) and urge them to improve on it and other innovations to ensuring a more credible process”
Part of the statement stated “I am delighted to note that, in the spirit of sportsmanship and patriotism, most of the candidates of other political parties in the contest have called to congratulate Prof. Soludo on his victory.
“I wish to urge him to be magnanimous in victory and take steps also to reach out to his co-contestants for the good of the State. Once more, I commend the spirit. It is the spirit that should pervade our polity, especially the Southeast. This victory is not for Anambrarians alone, but for our region and democracy
