Mr Frank Nweke jnr, the governor candidate of the All Progressives Congress Alliance, APGA, Wednesday, reacted to the announcement of Senator Bola Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election held on Feb 25.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission announced Tinubu winner, with PDP’s Atiku Abubakar coming second. Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party got the third position.
Nweke, a former minister of information, stated that, “In an election marked by the late arrival of materials, violent attacks, and reports of rigging substantiated by international observers, it is unfortunate that INEC prioritised declaring a winner over addressing the concerns of Nigerians.
“This is disappointing and unwise. At this time, I pray for strength, wisdom, protection, and the grace of God for Peter Obi, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, and the entire team as they take the next steps. I also pray for everyone who dared to believe, may your heart not be weary.
“Compatriots, I believe that we will rewrite our story. Keep hope alive, avoid violence, and be your brother’s keeper. My prayer is that wisdom and peace will guide our thoughts, utterances, and actions in the coming days and weeks.”
