Oseloka Obaze, candidate of the PDP, has reacted to the re-election of Governor Willie Obiano in Saturday’s election.

Obaze, who congratulated Obano on his victory, also hailed other candidates. His remarks in full:

“Good Afternoon. I wish to congratulate HE Gov. Willie M. Obiano and his running mate Dr. Nkem Okeke on their victory at the 18 November elections. I wish
both of them well.
“I salute my other fellow contestants for their valiant efforts and the decorum during the campaigning. Thank you for
promoting peace.
“Before now, I have expressed concerns about the contradicting variables that led to the electoral outcome. In that context, INEC needs to undertake an introspective reappraisal of its in-house processes, more so those relating to its ICT operations.
Beyond these remarks, I have closed the chapter on this particular election. We must now move on and return to the task of promoting good governance and the wellbeing of Anambra people.
“I salute my wife and children, my personal and campaign staff, our National and State party leadership, especially the PDP governors for their support. God bless them all.
“I thank in a very special way former Gov. Peter Obi and his dear wife Margaret Obi for their unfettered support. I also thank my running mate Lady Chidi Onyemelukwe and her husband Okey Onyemelukwe for their joint role, warmth and added value to our efforts.
“Finally, and on a sad note, I close by paying tribute to a father figure, my father’s friend, my mentor, and the father of my running mate, Dr. Alex Ifeanyi Ekwueme, who passed last night. May his soul find eternal rest; and may his family, friends and Nigeria find the fortitude to bear this huge loss.
“Thank you and God bless us. Bless Anambra and Bless Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, the APC Youths Renaissance has blamed South- east leaders for defeat the party.

The group said the ”​abysmal​ performance​” of the party was shameful, despite the assurances by leaders and members in the Southeast region.

It also urged President Buhari to “raise new leaders from the zone who will handle his re-election project in the Southeast region come 2019.​”
