Continuing, Obasanjo wrote: “You will agree with me, no doubt, that the outcome of the election broadly reflects the choice of your people, who have, by their conduct, visibly demonstrated that they cherish you and will do their utmost to make you succeed.

“I urge you, therefore, to reciprocate their trust by doing everything you can to strengthen their faith in democracy and in its ability to bring about improved material conditions and better service delivery to them.

“Such a gesture is not only charitable but should also help at this time to cool passions in the wider interest of Ekiti state in particular and Nigeria at large.
