Fellow contestants in the just concluded All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential primaries have sent in their congratulatory messages to the winner and flagbearer Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Bola Tinubu emerged as the winner of the special convention held in Abuja on Wednesday in a landslide victory, polling a massive vote of 1,271. 

Amaechi Rotimi, who acquired a total of 317 votes in his congratulatory message stated his readiness to work with Tinubu and the party as a winner is expected in every contest.

In a statement signed by the Amaechi media committee's chairman, Kingsley Wenenda Wali, he said, "We acknowledge that his victory follows a highly charged contest, which as expected, could only produce one winner.

“It is, therefore our hope that following the emergence of Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu as our Party’s Presidential Candidate, all Aspirants will now close ranks and work hard to ensure our Party’s victory at the 2023 Presidential Election."

On his part, Yemi Osinbajo, who was the first to congratulate Tinubu over his victory stated that his emergence was the will of God as God rules the affairs of man which humans may not understand.

“Understandably, many of you are dispirited and downcast but do not let your heart be troubled.

"There must be a reason God allowed this. It may not be manifest to us now but later as he is all-knowing. I’m unfazed, unbowed, and very proud of PYO."

Also the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, noted in a statement that the outcome of the election process has shown that Tinubu is the popular choice of the party for that assignment.

“I do not have an iota of doubt in the wisdom of that decision by our Party’s delegates from across the country.”

According to him, Tinubu's glittering track record of public service, foresight and grit in party building and administration, as well as the courage he continues to demonstrate in fighting for the entrenchment of democracy in Nigeria make him worthy of the high esteem and trust of the party members everywhere in Nigeria as exhibited at the National Convention.

“It is on this note that I heartily congratulate you on your well-deserved victory at the primary.

“I have no doubt that with your credentials, experience, antecedents and political sagacity, our great party will go into the 2023 contest confident of victory.”

The Senate President restated his commitment to the party and promised to work for its success.

In the same vein, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, a fellow aspirant, congratulated the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Lagos State in a message by his director, Media and Publicity, Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Organisation, Yemi Kolapo, while concerting defeat.

Bello disclosed that he will give the necessary support to ensure the victory of the party in the coming 2023 election, while describing the election as peaceful.
