Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha has congratulated Governor Willie Obiano on his re-election.
Okorocha gave the congratulatory message in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemedo, on Monday in Owerri.
The governor said that Obiano’s victory was too clear to be contested or questioned.
He, therefore, advised candidates of other political parties who took part in the election to congratulate the winner and avoid going to court to question his victory.
Okorocha, who is also the Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors’ Forum, expressed regret over the loss of his party in the election.
He attributed the loss to internal wrangling and the lack of genuine commitment on the part of the party’s leadership in the state.
He, however, expressed the hope that with the election, the future of APC in the South East was bright.
The governor urged Nigerians to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC led-government “for allowing level playing ground for all candidates.
“The Anambra election shows that the APC has what it takes to strengthen the nation’s democracy.”
