The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has slammed the leadership of the People Democratic Party PDP and the Labour Party LP for demanding the cancellation of the February 25 presidential election.
Tontrends had earlier reported that the PDP and the LP held a joint press conference earlier today where they condemned the conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections and called on INEC to cancel it. They also called on INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, to step aside from his duties.
Reacting to the demands, the Media Adviser of the APC PCC, Dele Alake, knocked the opposition parties for calling for the cancellation of the election, saying it will be tantamount to an “abortion of democracy”. While speaking at a press conference, Alake asked the presidential candidates of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar and his LP counterpart, Peter Obi to “accept defeat honorably”.
“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.” Alake said
