He said, “I congratulate the Governor on his re-election. It’s a victory well-deserved. The re-election is a call for the Governor to do more for the teeming masses of the state.
“Our people deserve improved standard of living, a productive local economy, good schools, access to quality and affordable health care, good road network and constant electricity supply. I trust the Governor to concentrate more on these in his second term.”
