All PDP Candidates Will Retrieve Their Mandates, Reps Minority Leader Vows
The Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, on Tuesday, congratulated all the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Candidates who won during the just-concluded Governorship election.
Hon. Elumelu, in his congratulatory message statement made available to Ejes Gist News, however, vowed that PDP Candidates, including Nasarawa, Ogun, and other States who were allegedly deprived of victory during the polls, will retrieve their mandates at the Court.
“On behalf of the Minority Caucus and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) family in the House of Representatives, I congratulate the Governor-elect of Delta State, Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, and others so far declared on the platform of the PDP for their victory at the election.
“I also congratulate Governors Bala Mohammed and Seyi Makinde of Bauchi and Oyo States, respectively, and governors-elect of Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Eno and his Plateau State counterpart, Caleb Mutfwang, for their success at the polls.
“From the results obtained directly from Polling Units across the country, we are optimistic about the victory of PDP Candidates in other States, as the nation awaits final declaration in Adamawa, Taraba, Rivers, Zamfara, Enugu, and other states.
“The victory being recorded by PDP Governorship candidates is a resounding reaffirmation that they are persons of proven integrity, capacity, competence, commitment to duty, and political will to ensure that the aspiration of the people prevailed in governance.
“The PDP Caucus is deeply saddened by the manipulations in Nasarawa, Ogun, and other States where our Candidates were denied victory in the election but we remain confident that the stolen mandate will surely be retrieved at the Court.
“I, therefore, congratulate our already declared Governors-elect as well those awaiting declaration by INEC and charge them to double their efforts to deliver democracy dividends to the people,” the Minority Leader said.
