In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal said the result of the election, as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), reflects the true wishes of the majority of the people of the state.

He said as the leading political party in Sokoto State, he was not surprised by the manner of victory recorded by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because for long, it has been the party of choice for the people of the Caliphate state.

“The governor-elect ran an inspirational campaign, energizing the political terrain of Sokoto with his progressive values and his vision for the future. In this new term, I urge him to show that government can act to help people fairly especially in their difficult times”, he said.

While urging those who lost out in the contest to join hands with the winner so as to ensure rapid development of the state, Tambuwal also appealed to the people to support the governor-elect in order to ensure peace, unity and progress of Sokoto

In the same vein, Deputy Speaker Emeka Ihedioha also congratulated Wamakko on his victory in Saturday’s governorship election.

He said Wamakko’s election for a second term in office was a confirmation of his popularity among the electorate and a clear vote of confidence on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by the people of Sokoto State.
