The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari would congratulate anybody who emerges as winner, in a free, fair and credible presidential election that comes up tomorrow, even as the president is sure of winning.
The PCC also said that the president would thank Nigerians for the support given and for coming out to vote in the election.
The deputy director- general of PCC, Waziri Bulama, who stated this in an interview Thursday in Abuja, said the PCC had carried out an extensive campaign and there is no way Bujhari would lose the election.
According to him, Nigerians would keep fate with the president and with APC in this election.
Bulama said it is pertinent for the PCC to thank the APC supporters and volunteers who carried out the campaign free of violence. According to him, minimal or insignificant violence was recorded with APC supporters.
According to him, this was possible because of the charge given to them by the President on the Campaign Council inauguration day that he would not accept a violent campaign.
Asked what would be the reaction of the President should he lose, the PCC General said director said: “The outcome of this election, if free, fair and credible would be accepted by President Muhammad Buhari and by the party.
“If we win, which is very, very unlikely, 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 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 giving 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 Buhari will still thank Nigerians and will call the person that eventually won the election and congratulate him.
Assessing the campaign and the Campaign Council, Bulama said, “You know Nigeria is a very great and vast country – nearly 200 million people.
