Issuing the Governor with the certificate of return at the Headquarters of the state Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Atahiru Jega represented by the national commissioner of INEC, Ambassador Lawrence Nwuruku congratulated the winners on their electoral victory.

He urged politicians not to see election as a do or die affair as well as to be magnanimous in their celebrations.
