President Goodluck Jonathan has called on all African leaders and political actors to continue to do their utmost best to further entrench true democracy and good governance in their countries.
The President, in his congratulatory message to President Faure Gnassingbé of Togo on his victory in the country’s recent presidential election noted that the growing culture of free, fair and credible elections in Africa as witnessed in recent polls in Nigeria, Benin Republic, Togo and other countries signalled good omen for political stability and faster development on the continent.
He said that now that President Gnassingbe’e victory at the polls has been confirmed by Togo’s Constitutional Court, all the people of Togo should accept the election results in good faith and give maximum support and cooperation to their re-elected leader for peace, stability and progress in their country.
In a statement by his special adviser on media and publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, President Jonathan commended the people of Togo on the successful conduct of the presidential elections and advised any persons who might still have issues with its outcome to comport themselves as true democrats and law-abiding citizens by seeking redress only through recognized legal means.
