The All Progressives Congress has set up a reconciliation committee to meet with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi of the Labour Party and other aggrieved candidates of political parties who contested last Saturday’s presidential election.
The committee, according to the Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, is to resolve their displeasure and ensure all parties involved work together with the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, for the growth of Nigeria.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had on Wednesday declared Tinubu winner of the February 25 presidential election.
Akeredolu disclosed this in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, on Wednesday.
He said, “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.
He appreciated the residents of the state for their support in the election and commended them for voting for the candidate of the party.
He described the support as an attestation and love the people of the state had for his administration.
He said, “Ondo People are progressives and we will always at least be on the side of progressivism. From the onset, we were at the forefront of the clamour for a Southern President and so we have to put everything we had into it and we got support that is why we are able to make it.” Source: Punch
