In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday and signed by Reuben Abati, his spokesperson, the President also commended 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 applauded the people of Osun state for coming 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.

He also added that 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.

President Jonathan also promised that as Governor Aregbesola get set 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 President further wished Governor Aregbesola continued good health and a successful second term in office.
