Buhari Will Concede If Defeated, Congratulate Winner, Says APC

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari, if defeated in the rescheduled presidential election, will concede defeat and congratulate who ever wins the race.

The ruling party however said for such to happen the process that will produce the winner must be free, fair and credible.

The above information is coming from the campaign council of the ruling APC when its deputy director-general, Waziri Bulama, addressed newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.

Although Mr Bulama said it’s impossible for the party to loose the election he said the electorate has the final say.

“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,” Bulama said.
