A socio-political activist and critic, Adesunbo Onitiri, have urged all aggrieved politicians in the February 25 presidential election to call their supporters to order noting that the best man may not necessarily win the election.
Vangaurd reported that Onitiri made this call on Sunday in Lagos, stating that the process the disgruntled politicians who lost in the just concluded election were embarking on to reclaim their alleged lost mandate posed serious threat to the unity of the country.
He said, “The February 25, elections have come and gone. A winner has been declared. Let us all put the election behind us and move on to salvage the country.
“The best man may not necessarily win the election. Definitely, we may not all like the winner. But let us all embrace the process and start the healing process.
“It’s only God that can install a leader or President of a country. As democrats, we are all winners and in the interest of our nation, we must move on.
“Nigeria belongs to us all and we have no other country we can call our own. As a stakeholder and concerned democrat, I wish to implore other aggrieved presidential candidates to employ all peaceful means to express their grievances within the confines of the law and our constitution.
“They should also call their supporters and followers to order and adopt peaceful means of handling the election disputes.”
Onititi, however, called on the winner to establish all-inclusive government to ensure unity and love.
