EARLY CONGRATULATORY MESSAGES POUR IN FOR PRESIDENT BUHARI

...AS ASIWAJU BOLA TINUBU CALLS ON OPPOSITION TO ACCEPT ELECTION VERDICT



After the successful counting of votes in the 2019 Presidential election by INEC, congratulatory messages have started pouring in for the President Mohammadu Buhari, who led with more votes. 

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bolaji Ahmed Tinubu, while congratulating the President on his election victory, called on the opposition to accept defeat that there will always be a winner and a loser.

On his part, the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Liberty Party (NDLP), Bar. Robinson Akpua in a signed statement,  said that Buhari’s victory is a clear manifestation of his acceptance by majority of Nigerians from all geopolitical regions of the country. “The Victory of the president is an endorsement of the innumerable achievements recorded by him in his current term as well as a mandate for him to do more in the second term. I have no doubt whatsoever that the president, a man of integrity and action, will surpass the expectations of Nigerians, who have made him their choice” 
In its congratulatory message to President Mohammadu Buhari signed by Professor Ishaq Akintola, the Director, Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), described Buhari’s victory as well-deserved. The human rights organization rejoiced with President Muhammadu Buhari and prayed for Allah’s protection and guidance for him. The message was contained in a press statement signed by the Founder and Director of the group, Professor Ishaq Akintola, on Wednesday, 27thFebruary, 2019.

“We felicitate with President Muhammadu Buhari on his well-deserved victory in the 2019 presidential election. There is no doubt that Buhari is the choice of the Nigerian people. He won this enviable position by dint of his love for the poor masses, his Spartan way of life, his transparency and the indisputable aura of integrity which surrounds him. Buhari is an uncommon leader in the whole of Africa. He will go down in history as the father of modern Nigeria. We are very proud of him.

“Buhari’s re-election is a reward for good governance. We charge Nigerians to cooperate with the president by changing their mindset. This is the time to set a new agenda for our country. Let us emulate Buhari in transparency, honesty, simplicity and hard-work. Both young and old Nigerians must eschew the rush for materialism. Let us regain our lost values and norms. Fraud, yahoo-yahoo and all forms of 419 were never part of our culture in Nigeria. We must not miss the lessons in Buhari’s victory. In particular, we must realize that a good name runs faster than silver and gold.

“The APC leadership must sit up from now. This is the time to prepare a roadmap to the consolidation of the gains of Buhari’s first term and prepare strategies for escaping landmines and ambushes particularly in the National Assembly (NASS). The eighth NASS has performed woefully. It is an anti-people, pro-corruption, pro-capitalist bourgeoisie. It is the worst in the history of our nation. We must therefore make sure that it does not happen again.

“MURIC advises Buhari’s supporters to jubilate moderately. We must not rejoice with spite. This victory must not go into our heads. Dangerous convoy drives must be avoided. Speedy motorcycle displays of joy which often lead to accidents are unnecessary. We all must be in sober reflection.

“We call on the opposition to join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari. We all must adopt a new dogma in the few months to come: that the winner did not win because he is the best; neither did the loser lose because he is the worst. Let us see no winner, no vanquished. The only entity we should see is Nigeria. This is how to eliminate bitterness. Nigeria is the winner and the beautiful Nigerian people are the heroes of our new democratic experience. We should therefore match forward together to build a strong and united nation.

“We call on religious leaders to direct showers of supplications to the Supreme Creator to protect President Buhari, to prosper Nigeria, overwhelm enemies of this country, overcome powers of darkness and make Nigeria flourish once again under this administration and thereafter.

Ex Ilupeju Diamond Lion's Club President, Mrs. Olatundun Omosaiye in her congratulatory message to President Buhari said, "It’s now time for us nigerians to go back to our various work places, work hard and join hands together to make Nigeria great regardless of who you voted  for or your political affiliation. Nigeria is still Nigeria with or without you.

"Make your mark, contribute your own quoter, cooperate with those elected monitor and direct them to do right, demand for what is beneficial to all not your selfish personal gains and contracts, and pray for them. Nigeria is and will be great again and again. Congratulations Nigerians and thank God for his faithfulness."

She went on to advice President Buhari, "don’t waste too much money on inauguration and swearing in ceremony, you were there before, nothing has changed, concentrate on how to put food on the table of the masses and a better life for us all."
