Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and that of Labour Party (LP) respectively have been begged to work with President-Elect, Bola Tinubu.
National Deputy Chairman (South) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Emma Eneukwu made the appeal following calls by Labour Party and PDP that they have rejected the presidential election.
The APC chieftain made the plea in a message sent to pressmen in Enugu on Thursday.
He said, “This will renew the hopes of the masses as Tinubu will run an all-inclusive government that would accommodate everybody.”
Eneukwu said he is optimistic that Tinubu has all it takes to make Nigeria a safe and progressive habitat for all, noting that “This natural innate quality of the master strategist, Tinubu, would definitely turn things around in the country.”
He advanced that the President-elect and his incoming government would leverage so well the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari to provide renewed hope to the masses, as stated by his campaign slogan.
The APC deputy south chairman stated, “I wish to use this opportunity to congratulate our party, the APC, on our victory during the just-concluded Presidential election.
“My special congratulations go to our President-Elect, Sen Ahmed Bolaji Tinubu, who won in a grand style despite all sorts of negative propaganda against him and our great party.
“The election was a free and fair one as everybody came out en masse to elect leaders of their choice, and Tinubu’s victory is the overall resolve of Nigerians on who they want to pilot their affairs in four years to come.
“I am very elated because Nigerians elected someone who has the knack for wealth creation and human capital development.
“He has demonstrated this perspective and his resolve to extend dividends of democracy of upcoming leadership through his acceptance speech as well as his speech during the reception of his certificate of return.
“The new President-Elect sees and places Nigeria first in everything and can do everything within his powers to make Nigeria work and great again.”
While calling on party supporters to finish hard with the incoming governorship election he said “I want to also use this opportunity to ask all our party members to finish the remaining work during the Gubernatorial and State Assembly Elections by ensuring that the party wins more states, in addition to reclaiming all the lost ones.
“We have always shown Nigerians that we are the best political party that delivers democratic dividends to the masses.
“I believe that the sterling performances of our Governors and the integrity of our candidates will give us more victory.
“APC is the only party in Nigeria that abides by all the democratic principles and we believe that we can do better.”
