Nigeria’s president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has revealed what made him very sad during the just concluded governorship and house of assembly elections nationwide.

Tinubu, in a statement on Tuesday said he was saddened by the reported isolated infractions during the elections and its aftermath in some states.

“I strongly condemn it. Also, the report of arson after the announcement of governorship results in one state did not represent who we truly are: peace-loving people.

“The physical and verbal assaults committed are unacceptable and antithetical to democratic ethos,” he said.

Acording to Tinubu, elections should be a celebration of the nation’s maturing democracy and freedom of choice and ought not to be moments of grief.

“I am particularly pained by cases of ethnic slurs, which are capable of creating needless mis-characterisation reported in some locations.

“My appeal is for us to rise above our differences, which, in reality, are fewer than the valued strings that bind us together as a people irrespective of the circumstances of our births,” he stated.

Tinubu added that as former governor of Lagos State, he could attest to the strength in the nation’s diversity and togetherness.

“As your President-elect, it is that spirit of inclusiveness we engendered in Lagos that I intend to bring into national governance so that together we can attain our full potentials,” he said.
