Jonathan Congratulates Mugabe On Victory At Presidential Polls

Robert_MugabePresident Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated his Zimbabwean counterpart – President Robert Mugabe – on his victory in last week’s presidential elections as announced by the country’s electoral commission at the weekend.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Dr. Reuben Abati, the President Jonathan said while celebrating their victory at the polls, Mugabe and his party, ZANU-PF, should rededicate themselves to working for the well-being and progress of all Zimbabweans.

The statement reads in part: “The President also calls on President Mugabe to ensure that all persons and parties who oppose the conduct of the polls and the announced results are given every opportunity to seek lawful redress as allowed by the country’s electoral laws and constitution.

“He welcomes the decision of the main opposition leader, Mr. Morgan Tsvangirai to avail himself of these avenues of peaceful and legal redress instead of resorting to unlawful actions that could lead Zimbabwe down the road of political instability again.”
