Yobe state governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, has expressed his hearty congratulations to President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo as well as the All Progressives Congress, APC, over victory in the just-concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections.
A statement on Thursday by the governor’s Director-General (Press Affairs), Abdullahi Bego, said Mr Buhari’s victory and re-election as president is a clear statement that Nigerians are on board with the policies and direction of the APC-led administration over the last four years.
According to him, Nigerians are confident that the president will take the country to the Next Level through policies and programmes that will make the economy stronger and the nation more peaceful.
Mr Bego said: “H.E Governor Ibrahim Gaidam believes that the massive votes that the president and other APC candidates received in Yobe State last week speak to the relative peace that has returned to the state from years of Boko Haram violence and the hard work of the Buhari administration in making that happen.
“There is no doubt that Yobe people’s votes reflect their appreciation of the Buhari administration’s role in restoring peace and security in the state and the role of the Yobe State Government in improving their living conditions.
“Mr President can rest assured that, as last week’s election showed, Yobe is – and will always remain – a true and solid home of the APC and the people will continue to support his administration every step of the way.”
