By Ben Agande Kaduna –
The Arewa Consultative Forum has called on former Vice President,
Abubakar Atiku to concede defeat in the just concluded election and
congratulate president Muhammadu Buhari.
Abubakar Similarly, the ACF has also called on the president elect,
Muhammad Buhari “to ensure that the new administration keeps to
its promise of strengthening our unity and inclusiveness in government ,
so that no section or group is left behind or left out”.
In a statement issued in Kaduna Wednesday morning, the ACF
congratulated president Buhari for his victory at the polls, adding that
his re-election has “signaled a new regime in our democratic process
The statement, signed by the publicity secretary of the forum,
Muhammed Biu noted that “the 2019 Presidential election is
another milestone in the nation’s election history in view of the keen
contest between the two major contenders in the persons of President
Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR of All Progressive Congress ( APC)
and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON of the People’s Democratic
Party (PDP) .
“The successful conclusion of this election despite some of the ugly
incidences witnessed in some parts of country in terms of ballot box
snatching, killings , security challenges and other logistic problems,
Nigerians have clearly demonstrated their resolve to move forward and
consolidate the gains of multiparty democracy.
“Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), therefore, congratulates all
Nigerians for their resilience, commitment and courage in exercising
their civic responsibility amid challenges that are natural concomitant
of such tasks and responsibilities. “ACF equally congratulates
President Muhammadu Buhari on his re-election as the President of
the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the just concluded 2019
Presidential election. “Of equal importance, the ACF salutes the
courage of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for putting up a gallantry (sic)
fight with an impressive performance in the presidential elections.
“The forum calls on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of PDP as a
committed democrat, who cherishes peaceful democratic transition to
accept the will of the people, concede defeat and congratulate
President Buhari on his well deserved victory at the just concluded
elections, especially as there are credible evidence that the elections
have been generally peaceful, free and fair. Such concession on the part
of the main challenger would be in the overall interest of Nigeria and
place him among global democrats” it added.
