A statement by Phineas Elisha, the Director Public Affairs to the Gov Ngilari said that the electorates and politicians in the state deserve commendation for the patriotism and maturity shown during the elections.
He observed that while there were violence in some states, the electorates in Adamawa showed maturity and conducted themselves orderly and voted peacefully while the politicians exhibited the spirit of sportsmanship by accepting the outcome in good faith.
” Our candidate of the PDP, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu showed exemplary sportsmanship by conceding defeat before the announcement of the result.
” Ribadu emulated President Jonathan who took the lead in showing Nigerians how to place the the peace and progress of the nation above personal interest”, the statement said.
While stressing the need to sustain the tempo, the statement congratulated the new governor elect and urged him to embrace all in the project of transforming the state.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
