News Release: Nigeria’s Ruling Party Congratulates Winner Of Edo State Governorship Election

The Peoples Democratic Party has received with mixed feelings the results of the Edo State gubernatorial election in which the candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has been declared winner.

While we await the reports of our monitors in different locations in the state in order to determine our next course of action, we commend the people of Edo State for their enthusiastic participation in the exercise.

In the course of our campaigns, we told the people that our entry into the race was not a do or die affair. We did our best to provide a credible alternative to the people of the state.

We shared their hope for a re-entry into the main stream of Nigerian Politics. We shared their sentiments in their yearning to join the list of progressive states administered by the PDP.

However, to our disappointment, the results as declared by INEC did not go our way.

As a Party that respects the institutions of democracy, and in demonstration of the spirit of sportsmanship which is the acclaimed principle of the PDP under the leadership of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, we call on all our supporters to accept this results as declared by INEC.

We congratulate the winner for this victory.
