APC chairman admits February 25 polls not perfect

The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has admitted that the process that led to the emergence of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu as Nigeria's President-elect, was not perfect, after he mentioned that Nigeria did not set out to conduct a perfect election.

Adamu had said, "It’s fair and honourable to admit that the Feb. 25 elections were not perfect. We didn’t set out to conduct perfect elections. World history has no instances of perfect elections. Like all other democratic nations, we set out to conduct free, fair, and credible elections. This we did."

DailyPost reported that Adamu made this statement during a meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) with Tinubu, his Vice, Kashim Shettima, and the newly elected members of the National Assembly.

Adamu congratulated the winners of the February 25, 2023 Presidential and National Assembly elections, and insisted that even though the process was not perfect, it was clear that they won the contests.

The APC bigwig, however, charged them to take upon themselves, the burden of national unity, peace, and development, as they assume their offices in May.
