In 2015, Jonathan Did Not Wait For INEC To Finish Collation Before He Called Buhari – Dele Alake

Dele Alake, a prominent member of the All Progressives Congress' presidential campaign council, called on the Labour Party and the People's Democratic Party to concede defeat because he believed the APC's candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was headed for victory on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, during a briefing.

The APC is now ahead of its main rivals in the 2017 Presidential election, according to the figures thus far declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In response to the winning margin between the APC and the other political parties, Dele Alake reportedly stated that he thought Tinubu had won the election and that his opponents should contact and congratulate him. He claimed that after learning the results of the 2015 election, Goodluck Jonathan, the president in office at the time, immediately called Buhari to congratulate him.

He remarked, "According to the results announced by the collation centers in the states, our candidate has already won the election. In the pure spirit of democracy and sportsmanship, President Jonathan contacted President Buhari in 2015 instead of waiting for INEC to finish collating the results."

"We implore Abubakar and Obi to take the same road of honor rather than igniting the political scene with careless remarks made by surrogates. Let Atiku and Obi call Tinubu right away and concede defeat so that they can salvage Nigeria by doing what is required and appropriate.
