Rauf AregbesolaRivers State Governor and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, has hailed his Osun State counterpart, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on his victory in Saturday’s governorship election.

This is even as Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State described Aregbesola’s victory at the keenly contested poll “well-deserved”.

The governors in their separate congratulatory messages commended the people of Osun State for their steadfastness and wise choice by voting the All Progressives Congress.

Amaechi, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. David Iyofor, on Sunday, explained that the victory was well deserved, saying, “It goes to show that the people of Osun decided to vote wisely. They chose sustainable development and good leadership”.

The NGF chairman, however, expressed confidence that other states across the nation would follow the example of the people of Osun in 2015 and beyond by embracing the wind of change represented by APC.

In his message, Fashola said Aregbesola’s victory came despite harassment and intimidation from the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government.

The statement, which was signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Hakeem Bello, read: “Following the formal declaration by INEC in the early hours of Sunday, of the incumbent Governor of Osun, Rauf Aregbesola, as the winner of Saturday’s gubernatorial election, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN, has congratulated his brother governor for a well-deserved victory.

“Fashola congratulated the people and the government of Osun State for a well-fought and won election in spite of intimidation and harassment by agencies of the ruling opposition party who sought to militarise the state during the event.

“The victory of his brother governor on the platform of the All Progressives Congress and the people of the Osun would remain a strong indicator of the victory of truth over falsehood, pointing out that no matter the amount of pressure or intimidation to suppress them, the ultimate power rests on the people in a democracy”.
