He said the manner of conduct of the November 6 Anambra State governorship is an indication of the administration’s commitment to promoting democracy and guaranteeing the success of the 2023 elections.

Ategbesola said: ‘Well, the president received briefs from all the heads of security services in Nigeria, the security agencies and intelligence organisations on security nationwide.

‘While appreciative of the successes and gains made by all the security agencies from the armed forces of Nigeria to police and intelligence organisations, as well as other security agencies, he is of the belief that more must still and should still be done.

‘But he commended all of them for the progress we are recording on all fronts.

‘The president was particularly happy with the fact that a free and fair election was made possible by the INEC and our security agencies. And that is a good assurance to all Nigerians, that we are committed to promoting democracy, that is in respect of the Anambra election.

‘The president was particularly happy that a free and fair gubernatorial election in Anambra. And he was quite happy that the combination of INEC and the security agencies, from the military to the police and all the other agencies made that possible with the support for the people of Anambra and the government of Anambra. And we all saw the outcome.

‘With that, there is no doubt as to the commitment of our administration, to promoting democracy, and ensuring that 2023 is not in any way threatened.’
