‘2023 Presidential election was free and fair’ — Tinubu


The President-elect, Bola Tinubu has described the 2023 elections as free and fair, saying the honour of that victory has fallen on him.

Speaking in a signed statement on Thursday, Tinubu addressed those disappointed with the outcome of the election, saying their choice to contest the results is well within the democratic process.

He said, “A fair, credible election has been held and has been won.

“The honour of that victory and the steep responsibility it entails has fallen on me.

“I say this not to gloat or boast because there is no room for such behaviour.

“I merely state the facts as they are. I realise many good and well-meaning Nigerians voted for other candidates.

“They are naturally disappointed that their favoured candidate did not win. Other candidates have voiced their dissatisfaction, stating they will go to court to contest the election.

“This is inherent to the democratic process. We defend their right to seek legal recourse.

“While they exercise the legal rights afforded them in our democracy, I have set my course and mind on the leadership of this nation.

“We have important work to do and I am committed to getting that work done for the benefit of all the people, whether or not they voted for me or even voted at all.”
