The All Progressives Congress is “very lucky” to avoid bloodshed following Bola Tinubu’s victory in the fiercely contested and highly contentious presidential election held on Saturday, says President Muhammadu Buhari.
On Wednesday, the president stated this when he received President-elect Bola Tinubu and Vice-President-elect Kashim Shettima, who visited him in Daura, Katsina.
Mr Buhari has commended supporters and the presidential campaign council of the APC for its “historic win” in the February 25 election.
He believed that the party’s victory would never have been possible without the discipline, commitment and hard work of the APC Presidential Campaign Council.
Apparently overcome with emotions, seeing the “phenomenal election result,” Mr Buhari kept repeating, “My Good Lord, My Good Lord, fantastic.”
“We are very lucky; there were no problems. No bloodshed, no accidents. We have God Almighty to thank for this,” the president uttered as he warmly clasped the hand of the president-elect.
