In a statement on Wednesday, Felix Morka, APC spokesperson, asked the other political parties to join forces with Tinubu for the benefit of Nigerians.


Morka said the president-elect would do all it takes to make the country prosperous.


 “We commend all political parties and their supporters for the engaging contest. We urge them to join hands with Bola Ahmed Tinubu, president-elect, to work for the utmost good and benefit of all Nigerians, irrespective of partisan political, ethnic, religious, age or gender difference,” he said.


“As stakeholders, we must put our people first and make their best interest and well-being the top and controlling priority of the incoming administration.


“We have full faith and confidence that our president-elect would spare no effort in mobilising all available human and material resources to take our country to new and lofty heights of unity, peace, economic vibrancy, security and prosperity.”


Morka thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for his loyalty to the party.


“Your unparalleled program of electoral and democratic reform provided a conducive predicate for the successful conduct of this year’s presidential election. Your legacy will endure through time,” he said.


“We commend the INEC for the creditable discharge of its statutory duty to deliver a free and credible presidential election.”
