Elections over, let the healing process begin – Tinubu

President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has asked for the healing process to begin now that the February 25th Presidential/National Assembly and the March 18th Governorship/State Assembly elections are over.

Tinubu made this appeal in an statement released on the official website of Tinubu/Shettima campaign.

The statement reads, in part:

“I’m 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.

“Elections should be a celebration of our 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.”
