Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, stated in his victory address at Eagle Square, the site of the APC presidential primary, that he did not expect to win.
Those who stood down for him were praised, and those who did not support him have nothing to worry, according to the former Governor of Lagos State.
“Let me not punish my president too long. The competition you offered made our party stronger and made me better. I am grateful to all of you.
“I hold no grudges and grievances. Let us work together to defeat PDP. They had 16 years, they depleted our resources, and they left us with hunger. They are the agent of poverty, terror and lying.
“Those who didn’t support me have nothing to fear. I hold no grudges. Let us all work together.”
Apologizing to President Buhari, he added;
“Please forgive me for taking you this long. I didn’t expect to win but I won. Today is the only day I can punish you.”
