Mr Thomas Okosun, the Edo Chairman of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for not interfering in the just concluded governorship election in the state.
Okosun in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Benin also commended INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega for conducting a free and fair election.
He said that the President had lived up to his words, adding that had the two interfered, the election would have been won by the opposition.
“With this election, the President has indeed demonstrated that he is a man of his words and Nigerians can trust him too.
“ACN’s victory today is a victory for Nigeria’s democracy and gradual liberation from the era of dictatorship.”
The chairman noted however that INEC still needs to improve on its operations, especially in producing accurate voters register, provision of logistics and the distribution of election materials.
“In all I give God the glory and I thank the people of Edo State for their support and show of love and solidarity for the governor and ACN. (NAN)
