Reacting to the Forum of Nigerian Leaders and Elders’ position, last night, the APC, in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to its National Chairman, Mr Simon Ebegbulem, said Buhari had the confidence of the people and it did not really matter what some factional leaders of a group said.
“We will not like to join issues with this Forum because President Muhammadu Buhari has won and there is no doubt that majority of Nigerians have spoken their minds at the ballot. This is time for fence mending and not time to respond to such issues. But we just want to make it clear that the election was free, fair and credible. And we are glad international observers have attested to it. You will also recall that a faction of the groups in this so-called Forum had earlier endorsed the President”, the statement said.
“Some of these people predicted doom before the election but God, in his infinite mercy, proved them wrong. “President Buhari has the confidence of Nigerians and he will continue to enjoy the support of Nigerians for another four years and beyond”.
