The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council has urged the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to accept defeat and congratulate Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu.

The APC PCC Media Adviser, Dele Alake, said this while condemning the LP and PDP for calling for the cancellation of the presidential election.

The PUNCH reported that PDP and LP, on Tuesday, held a media briefing against the conduct of Saturday’s presidential election.

The parties also called on the Independent National Electoral to cancel the election.

Alake said, “This election has already been won by our candidate, according to the result declared by the collation centres in the states. In 2015, President Jonathan did not wait for INEC to finish collation before he called President Buhari in the true spirit of democracy and sportsmanship.

“We urge Abubakar and Obi to follow the same path of honour instead of heating the polity with reckless statements by surrogates. Let Atiku and Obi do the needful, the necessary thing and save Nigeria by calling Tinubu now and conceding defeat.”
