“Tinubu Is The Best Person For The Job” – President Muhammadu Buhari Says As He Congratulates Bola Ahmed Tinubu As The Winner Of the 2023 Presidential Elections

Buhari Congratulated Bola Tinubu

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the winner of this year’s presidential election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

What President Muhammadu Buhari Said About Election Results

Responding to the presidential election results announced this morning by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Mahmoud Yakubu, President Buhari said: “I congratulate His Excellency Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory. Elected by the people, he is the best person for the job. I shall now work with him and his team to ensure an orderly handover of power.”

“The election was Africa’s largest democratic exercise. In a region that has undergone backsliding and military coups in recent years, this election demonstrates democracy’s continued relevance and capability to deliver for the people it serves.

What President Muhammadu Buhari Said About Democracy’s Ripening

The President urged that the results revealed Democracy’s Ripening in Nigeria as the electoral map has changed drastically.

“Within Nigeria, the results reveal democracy’s ripening in our country. Never has the electoral map shifted so drastically in one cycle. In the presidential elections, states in all regions across the nation changed colour. Some amongst you may have noticed my home state amongst them.

“The winning candidate did not carry his own home state either. That happens during a competitive election. Votes and those that cast them cannot be taken for granted. Each must be earned. Competition is good for our democracy. There is no doubt the people’s decision has been rendered in the results we look at today”.

What President Muhammadu Buhari Said About Election Faults

In his statement, Buhari noted that the exercise also had its shortcomings, citing technical problems with the electronic transmission of the results.

“That is not to say the exercise was without fault. For instance, there were technical problems with the electronic transmission of the results. Of course, there will be areas that need work to bring further transparency and credibility to the voting procedure.

“However, none of the issues registered represent a challenge to the freeness and fairness of the elections”.

“I know some politicians and candidates may not agree with this view. That too is fine. If any candidate believes they can prove the fraud they claim is committed against them, then bring forward the evidence. If they cannot, then we must conclude that the election was indeed the people’s will – no matter how hard that may be for the losers to accept. If they feel the need to challenge, please take it to the courts, not to the streets.

“However, to do the latter means they are not doing it in the interest of the people, but rather to inflame, to put people in harm’s way and all for personal, selfish gains.

The President added that after a degree of polarization that necessarily accompanies any election, it is now time to come together and act responsibly. I call on all candidates to remember the peace pledge they signed just days before the election. Do not undermine the credibility of INEC. Let us now move forward as one. The people have spoken.
