Gov. Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun on Wednesday said that the victory of  retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari in Saturday’s presidential election signified the confidence of Nigerians in his leadership qualities.

A statement by Mrs Funmi Wakama, the governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, quoted  Amosun  in a congratulatory message to Buhari as saying Nigerians have great hopes in the president-elect.

“The people have spoken and demonstrated with their votes  their confidence in the ability of the president-elect to take Nigeria to greater heights.

“The transparency, zero-tolerance for corruption and the uprightness of Buhari are some of the qualities that must have endeared him to the electorate,” he said.

Amosun expressed the hope that Buhari’s administration would move the  nation forward.

“I convey my best wishes and look forward to a prosperous and great country under Buhari’s leadership,” the governor said.
