We’ll protect Tinubu’s victory by every means necessary — APC campaign

The directorate of agro commodities, presidential campaign committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it will protect the mandate of the President-Elect, Senator Bola Tinubu by “every means necessary”.

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 who were not comfortable with the outcome of the February 25 presidential election have filed petitions at the election tribunal to challenge the emergence of Tinubu as the Nigerian leader.

While addressing a press conference in Abuja, the nation’s capital, the head of the directorate of the presidential campaign committee, Bello Abubakar, said the presidential candidate of the ruling party won because of his “proven records” as governor.

“Let us be clear, the president and vice president-elect have the nation’s mandate. The mandate is a trust to them based on their proven records in Lagos and Borno states and their excellent administrative prowess over the years as well as sustained nationalism,” Abubakar said.

“We urged those that are not satisfied with the result of the election, to use the court as provided by the constitution and be peaceful doing so.

“Violence pays nobody. Let it be on record that as the largest voting Bloc in Nigeria, we are standing by the mandate of H.E Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and we will defend it by every means necessary.”

Shehu Muazu, a member of the PCC said: “We have a president-elect, who is yet to be in office.

“However, the directorate wants to call on the president His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari – now that the supreme court has spoken and we all know the consequences of that hardship, we are not saying anybody should be punished, we should be forgiving as we have been directed by our principal.

“However, we call on the federal government of today to put in place policies that will help to alleviate the losses incurred by farmers.”
