The Presidential candidate of the KOWA Party, Professor Remi Sonaiya on Tuesday congratulated the winner of Saturday’s presidential elections and President Elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) on his victory in the presidential election and reminded the former military ruler that the expectations of Nigerians were very high.
Sonaiya, who was the only female presidential candidate in Saturday’s elections congratulated the APC candidate on behalf of her party.
In a message sent to newsmen, Sonaiya prayed that God would give Buhari the needed wisdom to give Nigerians a better quality of life. While congratulating Buhari, she said: “I also wish to note that the expectations of Nigerians for a better quality of life are very high. “I pray that God will grant the General the wisdom to rise up to the challenge and live up to the challenge and live up to the promises of his campaign.’’
Sonaiya, shedding more light in a telephone interview with pressmen, said that the victory of Buhari, who won the presidential election after three failed attempts, showed what determination could do. “It shows determination, he believed he had something to offer and kept at it,’’ she said.
Sonaiya said her participation in the election would encourage more women to come into politics to fill a vacuum that still exists. The professor said that she would focus on building the KOWA Party to become stronger and help to deepen the nation’s democracy.
