The Kogi State governor-elect, Ahmed Usman Ododo, has appreciated President Bola Tinubu for creating atmosphere of peace and a level playing ground for him and other contestants during Saturday’s governorship election.
In a statement on Monday, Ododo noted that Tinubu paved the way for his victory.

“I appreciate the diverse perspectives and contributions from stakeholders who play a crucial role in shaping our policies and decisions. Your dedication reinforces the collaborative spirit that defines our vision for Kogi State,” Ododo began.
“Special appreciation to the national leader of our party and the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, for creating an atmosphere of peace and a level playing ground for all the contestants.
“From the moment you handed me the flag, I knew I would be successful. You remain a platform of success for millions around our nation and our administration will work closely with the Federal Government under your leadership just like our leader, His Excellency Alh Yahaya Bello is currently doing, to bring development to our dear state.
“Our Vice President sir, His Excellency Sen. Kashim Shettima, GCON, your inspirational speech at the flagoff of our campaign added an uncommon vista to our unbending determination to win and win well for our dear party. We are grateful sir.
