Following the just concluded presidential election in Lagos State, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and a former Governor of Lagos State, Senator Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has reacted to his defeat at the presidential polls in his home state by the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi.
In a statement, Tinubu said that he is bound to bound to accept the outcome of the just concluded presidential election as a Democrat.
Speaking further, Tinubu said that the victory of Peter Obi in Lagos State is a true showing of Democracy while also warning his followers and supporters not to see it as a source of provocation.
“The APC candidate further said that as a democrat he is bound to accept the outcome of any election whether favourable or not,” said a statement by the Director, Media & Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga on Monday.
“The fact that the APC narrowly lost Lagos State to another party should not be the reason for violence. As a democrat, you win some, you lose some. We must allow the process to continue unhindered across the country while we maintain peace and decorum,” the statement said.
Tinubu also expressed his concern for the variously reported election violence across the nation while kicking against it.
Obi polled 582,454 votes to trounce the former Lagos State governor who scored 572,606 votes.
