President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has called on the police to investigate the controversy after Adamawa’s resumption as governor, urging distraught candidates to seek legal ways to resolve their grievances.
Tinubu made the accusation in a post-election assessment statement released on Wednesday and personally signed by him.
He also congratulated the winners of the by-state gubernatorial elections to be held in Kebbi and Adamawa States on Saturday, April 15, 2023.
“The supplementary polls have now brought the 2023 elections to a final, fitting conclusion. I observed, with satisfaction, the largely peaceful atmosphere that pervaded the supplementary election on Saturday. It was a further testimony that our citizens have accepted democratic norms and have unalloyed faith in the electoral process.
“However, I note the matter of the Adamawa Supplementary Governorship Election and I urge police authorities to fully investigate all that transpired in the election given the attendant controversy. In every democratic contest, there has to be one winner. I call on those aggrieved to pursue legitimate means of addressing their grievances.
“With the conclusion of the 2023 elections, I now welcome all of us who have been elected to brace up to serve our people with diligence and dedication and to join hands with me as your President-elect in the pursuit of our agenda to renew the hopes of our people in a better, stronger, more secure, economically vibrant and prosperous Nigeria”.
