Atiku’s supporter urges Ex-VP to concede defeat
By Ibrahim Sarafa
One of the supporters of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and The publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, has advised Alh. Atiku Abubakar to concede defeat and congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari.
Momodu’s advice was contained in his Tweet on Tuesday morning via his Twitter handle @DeleMomodu.
Momodu, who is a social media influencer, apparently based his suggestion on the results of the states released so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
He noted that he was aware Abubakar would consult widely with party leadership, family members and associates both home and abroad.
He, however, advised that the path of peace should be toed in whatever choice he opted to take.
“My dear WAZIRIN, as a believer, you are aware that only God can give or take power. You’ve written your name in gold. Do not wait a minute longer. Please, pick that phone and call President Muhammadu Buhari. You have much more to gain Sir… Pass on the burden!”, his tweet read.
He said he campaigned vigorously for Buhari in 2015 but was unhappy with his performance more than three years in the saddle.
Momodu said the two paths to address the infractions noticed before, during and after the elections should be to either go for war or through the court.
But, as a believer in the rule of law, he suggested the latter. He said Nigeria is much more important than an individual’s ambition.
