Anenih in the statement titled: “Marching on with Hope” said “A keenly contested Presidential Election, which many predicted would spell doom for Nigeria, has ended, gloriously, with everyone a winner.“I congratulate the President-Elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, on his victory. Nigerians are expecting great things from him; it is my hope that he will take this great country to greater heights in the journey towards our manifest destiny.
“I salute the statesmanship of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan,
GCFR, in conceding defeat, even before the official declaration of results was done. By this noble act, President Jonathan has made an indelible mark on the sands of time. History will be very kind to him.
“President Jonathan has worked, selflessly, to deepen democracy in Nigeria. His consistent advocacy of the rights of the people to freely choose their leaders had earlier yielded free, fair and credible elections in some States of the Federation. Now, a peaceful transition is expected to follow after the general elections.
“The 2015 Presidential Election, in which the incumbent President lost to the opposition, has become a source of pride to Nigeria.
It has portrayed to the world that democracy in Nigeria compares to the best anywhere.
“I commend the General Abdulsalami Abubakar-led Peace Committee for its moral advocacy that culminated in the non-violent reception of the outcome of the Presidential Election.
“I am, also, happy that the Presidential Election has put a lie to the doomsday sayers. We have gone through the most critical of the elections and our country is at peace. Glory be to God!
“I congratulate all Nigerians on the success of the Presidential and National Assembly Elections and urge all and sundry to participate in the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly Elections, with the same zeal and patriotism.
“More importantly, while there are genuine reasons to disagree with certain aspects of the conduct and outcome of the Presidential and National Assembly elections, I urge all those who may still be aggrieved, to emulate the magnanimity and selflessness of President Goodluck Jonathan, so that our country may enjoy peace, which is a prerequisite of our march to greatness and prosperity.” Anenih said.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
