Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has congratulated President John Dramani Mahama of Ghana on his victory at the country’s presidential election held at the weekend.
Fayemi in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, noted that Mahama’s success at the poll was a testament to the maturity of the Ghanaian voters.
He said the conduct of a peaceful, transparent, credible and violence-free general election in Ghana has confirmed the West African country as a model of democracy to other countries in Africa.
The Governor stated that the election of Mahama to serve a fresh four-year term has proved that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate was the popular choice of the Ghanaian electorate.
He explained that Mahama’s return to the Osu Castle Presidential Mansion in Accra would further cement the cordial relationship that exists between the Republic of Ghana and Nigeria and particularly Ekiti State, where the President was conferred with an honorary doctorate degree by the Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti earlier in the year.
Fayemi urged Mahama to use the new mandate given him by the generality of Ghanaians to serve the people who voted him into office diligently and conscientiously. He commended Nana Akufo Ado for a well fought election and for his unshaken commitment to deepening democracy in Ghana and Africa as a whole.
He also appealed to opposition politicians to join hands with Mahama in order to make Ghana a better place.
