President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan congratulates Governor Olusegun Mimiko on his declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the winner of yesterday’s governorship election in Ondo State.
President Jonathan also commends the dutiful, patriotic and law-abiding electorate of Ondo State as well as the INEC personnel and security agencies who ensured that the elections were peacefully and successfully conducted in keeping with his Administration’s commitment to making elections in Nigeria progressively better organised and more credible.
As Governor Mimiko looks forward to the commencement of his second term in Office, the President urges him to be prepared to work even harder to justify the fresh mandate given to him by the people of Ondo state who voted for his re-election on Saturday.
President Jonathan assures Dr. Mimiko that the Federal Government will continue to engage constructively and positively with the Ondo State Government in collaborative efforts to achieve faster socio-economic development and better living conditions for people in the state and all other parts of Nigeria.
He wishes Dr. Mimiko a very successful second term as Governor of Ondo State.
