Senate President Ahmad Lawan has congratulated the Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe on his re-election for a second term of four years.
Earlier on Sunday, the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) declared Buni the winner of Saturday’s governorship election in Yobe.
In a statement issued on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi, the senate president described the outcome of the poll as a well-deserved victory for Buni and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“I heartily congratulate my dear friend and brother, the governor of Yobe, Mai Mala Buni, on his re-election for a second term.
“Also, I congratulate our great party, the APC, on the renewal of our mandate to continue delivering progressive governance to our people across Yobe. For our governor and party, this is a well-deserved victory from a keenly contested poll.”
Lawan said the victory above all, was for the good people of Yobe, who have freely renewed the mandate they gave in 2019.
“Fellow people of Yobe, you have again made a resounding statement of your full confidence in the leadership of governor Mai Mala Buni.
“I can assure you that our Governor will in the next four years remain on the same path of good governance for the progress of Yobe and the well-being of our people.”
He assured the governor that the people of Yobe would continue to support his mission to take the state to a greater height.
