12 presidential candidates congratulate Buhari
Twelve presidential candidates in the recently concluded February 23 presidential election have congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on his re-election.
The group acting under the auspices of Forum of Presidential Candidates and Political Parties for Good Governance stated at a news conference in Abuja, that the victory was deserved.
The Chairman of the forum, Mr. Shittu Kabir, said “We are indeed not oblivious of the fact that only one candidate will emerge as president.
“Now that the candidate of the APC, President Buhari has been re-elected, we have no qualms accepting his victory.
“Permit this opportunity to congratulate President Buhari on his well-deserved victory at the polls. The pattern of voting, the large turn-out and country-wide endorsement of Buhari attest to the fact that Nigerians are pleased with him, his style of leadership and performance in the last three and half years.”
Kabir, who is a member of Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA), appealed to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the election, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, not to dispute Buhari’s victory in court.
He said “We strongly urge Alhaji Abubakar to drop the legal option in expressing his grievances. This is consistent with the counsel of many well-meaning Nigerians, including Chief Olisa Agbakoba and General Ibrahim Babangida.
“We think he has a lot more to contribute to developing humanity and promoting peace and progress in our nation, even without holding any political office.”
