Enugu – The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA in Enugu State, Mr Frank Nweke Jr has decried the rush by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to declare Alh Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC winner of last Saturday’s presidential elections without addressing concerns over rigging and violence substantiated by international observers.
The former minister of Information who had earlier endorsed Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, equally prayed for “strength, wisdom, protection, and the grace of God for Peter Obi, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, and the entire team as they take the next steps.”
In an election marked by the late arrival of materials, violent attacks, and reports of rigging substantiated by international observers, it is unfortunate that INEC prioritised declaring a winner over addressing the concerns of Nigerians.
This is disappointing & unwise.
At this time, I pray for strength, wisdom, protection, and the grace of God for Peter Obi, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, and the entire team as they take the next steps.
I also pray for everyone who dared to believe, may your heart not be weary.
Compatriots, I believe that we will rewrite our story. Keep hope alive, avoid violence, and be your brothers keeper. My prayer is that wisdom and peace will guide our thoughts, utterances, and actions in the coming days and weeks.
God bless Nigeria.
Frank Nweke Jr
APGA Gubernatorial Candidate,
