Governor Obi’s Acceptance Speech

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am delighted to address you and indeed the entire world on the Gubernatorial election which was conducted in Anambra yesterday.
This election was unique in several respects: one, it was the only one that was conducted throughout Nigeria yesterday. Two, the entire world literally monitored it either directly or indirectly. Thirdly, although the age-old inadequacies of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in terms of poor preparation, late arrival of electoral materials, etc, manifested, they were minimal.
However, in spite of the foregoing, vote-counting, collation and announcement of results were relatively transparent. I wish to commend the INEC, election observers and monitors in this connection. For this singular reason also, I accept the result of the election as declared by INEC, namely, that I won this election.
May I take this opportunity to thank the good people of Anambra State for their massive support for me. By returning me for a second term, you have shown that you support our modest efforts at transforming our dear State. I promise you that my team and I will even do more in our second term to better your lot.
As for my brothers and sisters who contested the election with me, I commend them for their patriotism and desire to serve our people. You have no doubt put up a gallant fight. What is most important now is that we remain good brothers and sisters that we have been over the years and join hands in building a better Anambra State for ourselves and our children.
Finally, may I sincerely thank everyone – the security agencies, journalists (local and international) , the political class, election monitors and observers, the clergy – just everyone who has contributed one way or another in ensuring that this election succeeded in spite of some odds.
May God bless all of us!
PETER OBI
Governor, Anambra State
