Executive Secretary of the Ayedire Local Government of Osun State, Mr. Gbenga Ogunkanmi, has described the emergence of General Muhammadu Buhari as winner of the March 28 Presidential election as saying bye-bye to misrule and bad governance in the country.

Ogunkanmi in a congratulatory message to Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Osogbo stated that Buhari’s victory was a triumph of truth, genuine democracy and a reflection of the people’s wish for a new and better Nigeria.

While congratulating Nigerians on the successful election, Ogunkanmi commended Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega, for conducting a transparent and fair poll, even as he urged the commission to improve on the lapses recorded in the exercise.

According to Ogunkanmi, Buhari’s victory was a confirmation of the popular saying that power is transient, and that it also belongs to the people.

He was happy that Nigerians have successfully and effectively demonstrated their electoral power by voting out President Goodluck Jonathan and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ogunkanmi said Nigerians have spoken loud and clear through their votes that they wanted a government that would provide good governance, give them hope, address the challenges facing the nation holistically and give the country a new face before the international community.

“Nigeria and Nigerians have departed from bad leadership, bad governance and misrule. We have transited into a new Nigeria with a new government to bring in the real desired change. Nigerians were persistent and consistent on the cause of good governance, and I am happy we now have it. “General Muhammadu Buhari’s victory is an outcome of the rejection of the PDP and a careful selection of a person that Nigerians believed could stabilise the country and restore its lost glory.
