forward to be moved forward, advising the governor to
be magnanimous in victory and device ways of taking
the state to higher heights.
He stressed that he did not see himself as a loser as
he heeded the people’s call to serve.
“Defeat makes people stronger. We will go back to the
drawing board to see where we went wrong and
readjust for future aspiration. Our supporters should

showing at the poll,” the statement said.
