A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK) has advised the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi to accept defeat and congratulate the president elect, Senator Bola Tinubu.

This came as reaction to decision of the presidential candidate to challenge the results of the February 25 presidential election in court.

The presidential candidate while granting a television interview on Monday, March 13 said he would challenge the outcome of the election.

Obi said, “I’m not challenging who they declared. “I’m not challenging whatever the outcome, I’m challenging the process (through) which they arrived at their declaration.

“And unless we do that, we’re not going to stop the rascality we witnessed in that election.

“The process through which people come into the office is for me…far more fundamental than what they do thereafter. There is a process of doing things. There is a process of arriving at any destination. Like I said in my press conference if you’re going to answer ‘His Excellency’, the process of coming to that position must be excellent. If you’re going to be a Bishop, there’s a process of being a Bishop.”

While reacting to the television interview granted by Obi, the former minister of aviation through his social media page implored Peter Obi to accept defeat and celebrate the president elect.

He wrote: “Surrender loading! Poor confused soul, no longer making sense. My counsel? Be a MAN, withdraw the case, concede you LOST, reign in your supporters and congratulate our President-elect.”

The Informant247 recalls that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Bola Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election.

According to INEC, Tinubu came victorious with 8.8 million votes.

The presidential candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar came second with 6.9 million votes.

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, had 6.1 million votes.

Atiku and Obi have filed petitions at the election tribunal to challenge the emergence of Tinubu as the Nigerian leader.
