JUST IN: Tinubu In Search Of Soft- Landing, Sets Up Committee To Reconcile With Atiku, Obi, Kwankwaso
The President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has set up a committee to reconcile with other presidential candidates who contested last Saturday’s election.
Disclosing this, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State said the committees included elders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who “would soon begin to meet with co-contestants of the President-elect in a bid to assuage their loss in the just concluded presidential election.”
Tinubu of the APC had 8,794,726 votes to defeat Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party, who had 6,984,520 votes, while the Labour Party’s Mr Peter Obi with 6,101,533 votes and Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party got 1,496,687 votes.
According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Richard Olatunde, Akeredolu stressed that last Saturday’s presidential election was not padded.
The statement reads: “The President-elect has set up committees to meet with the gentlemen who contested in the election for us to start the healing process.
“I belong to one of the committees. We are going to meet them and appeal to them so that we can work together.”
