Buhari for his doggedness and Pres. Jonathan for laying the foundation for democracy in the country.
Governor Fayose, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said:
“The election result is the will of God and Nigerians, and all lovers of peace, progress and development of Nigeria must accept it”.
“To me, Nigerians and democracy won,“by this election, Nigerians have shown that Democracy has come to stay in the country.”
