With less than 24 hours to the commencement of the presidential election the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, has disclosed the conditions for its presidential candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari to accept defeat at the polls
The party said Buhari will concede defeat and congratulate who ever wins the race if the election is confirmed free, fair and credible.The Deputy Director-General, campaign council of APC, Waziri Bulama, said this when he addressed newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.Bulama, however, made it clear that it was impossible for the party to loose the election.
“The outcome of this election, if free, fair and credible would be accepted by President Muhammad Buhari and by the party,” the deputy DG said.
“If we win, which is very, very likely we will congratulate Nigerians for having participated in a free, fair and peaceful election.
“That is number one. Number two, we are not even going to celebrate or over celebrate because an election success of President Muhammadu Buhari is another burden on him and this man would want to do more than he has done.
“So, we will humbly thank Nigerians for given us their votes for another four years to build on what we have done.
“But in the event Nigerians decided, in a free, fair and credible election to give their votes to another person, President Muhammadu Buhari will still thank Nigerians and will call the person that eventually won the election and congratulate him,” he said.
