He asked, “If a grandfather can come out in the social media to beg for forgiveness, go to church and beg for forgiveness, who am I not to forgive the person. I am a mere mortal. I am governor today because of God, so if I now play god, I am not sure God will forgive me.”

The governor said he remained magnanimous in victory and vowed to bring everyone together irrespective of their political and religious inclination.
