Embrace Tinubu as President-elect, APC tells Atiku, Obi 


The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, to accept the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President-elect in the February 25 presidential election.

The director of Diaspora Directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council (APC-PCC), Ade Omole, who made the call Sunday in Abuja said all opposition political leaders should embrace Tinubu as Nigeria’s President-elect instead of challenging his victory in court.

Omole urged the opposition to take a cue from “world leaders who saw the need to congratulate and recognise Tinubu as Nigeria’s president-elect.”

Omole admitted that there were minimal hitches in a few states during the presidential election, he reasoned that such hitches were not enough to discredit the entire electoral process.

Omole advised that “rather than heating up the polity with unsubstantiated claims of electoral fraud during the election, members of the opposition parties should sheath their swords and allow peace to reign.” NAN
