The Speaker House of Representatives Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila has congratulated the candidates of the governing All Progressives Congress, APC, in the governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States, Yahaya Bello and David Lyon, for emerging victorious.
Mr. Gbajabiamila, in a congratulatory message by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, said the victories recorded by the APC candidates in the two States was an indication of the wide acceptance the party enjoys in the two States.
The Speaker said Bayelsa State, in particular, has now joined the Next Level train, having seen the massive change driven by the APC-led government at the federal level.
He said in the statement: “It is gladdening to know that our party, the APC, came out victorious in the governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States. This is a testimony that Nigerians across the length and breadth of the country are beginning to realize what the APC means for the country.
This victory is not for the party or its members alone, but for the entirety of Nigerians.”
Speaker Gbajabiamila also called on the two Governors-elect to carry every citizen along while they join hands to move the respective States forward.
“May I call on the two governors-elect to be magnanimous in victory. The APC stands for the good of Nigerians, and I know the two governors-elect are part of the journey to make Nigeria better,” the Speaker said.
