Jonathan congratulates Aregbesola on his victory

President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday congratulated Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State on his victory in the Saturday election.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, the President said the peaceful conduct of the elections
reaffirmed his administration's determination to positively reform
Nigeria's electoral processes.

He added that the outcome of the election vindicated him from what he called unfair and uncharitable allegations that measures put in
place by the Federal Government for the Ekiti and Osun State elections were designed to achieve a favourable outcome for his party, the Peoples Democratic Party.

He commended the Independent National Electoral Commission and national security agencies for ensuring that the elections were
free, fair, credible and peaceful.

Jonathan said as Aregbesola prepares to begin a second term in office, he looks forward to continuing to work with him and other state governors to further improve the living conditions
of Nigerians in Osun and other states of the country.

The statement read, "President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan congratulates Governor Rauf
Aregbesola of Osun State on his victory in Saturday's governorship election in the state.

"The President commends the Independent National Electoral Commission and national security agencies for ensuring that the elections were free, fair, credible and peaceful in keeping with the avowed commitment of his Administration.

"President Jonathan also applauds the people of Osun State who came out en masse yesterday in all the local government areas of the state to peacefully and freely exercise their democratic right, trusting in his assurance that all necessary measures would be taken to ensure their safety and the sanctity of their votes.

"The President believes that the free, fair and peaceful conduct of the elections have fully reaffirmed his administration's determination to
positively reform Nigeria's electoral processes.

"The outcome of the election has also given the lie to the false, unfair and uncharitable allegations that measures put in place by the federal government for the Ekiti and Osun State elections were partisan and designed to achieve a favourable outcome for his party.

"As Governor Aregbesola prepares to begin a second term in office, President Jonathan looks forward to continuing to work with him and other state governors to further improve the living conditions of Nigerians in Osun and other states
of the country.

"He wishes Governor Aregbesola continued good health and a successful second term in office."
