According to The Nation, former Governor of Old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo has congratulated President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on his landslide victory in the presidential election.
Nwobodo, a former chairman of the Governors’ Forum during the 2nd Republic, also congratulated President Goodluck Jonathan for his sportsmanship in conceding defeat.
In a statement issued in Enugu Wednesday, Nwobodo assured Buhari that the Igbos would support and cooperate with him and his government in moving Nigeria forward, “in spite of the way the Igbo voted.”
He appealed to Buhari to quickly reunite Nigerians, as the voting pattern in the last election showed a great divide across ethnic and religious divide.
“The campaigns and elections are over and every Nigerian irrespective of tribe, tongue and religion, would very soon become your responsibility,” Nwobodo stated.
