The Social Democratic Party presidential candidate, Adewole Adebayo, has called on the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, and the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to show that they love Nigeria by conceding to the All Progressives Congress candidate, Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu.
The statement from Adebayo is coming amidst the calls from the Labour Party and PDP for the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, to resign, and for the election to be cancelled.
In the post he made via his verified Twitter handle, and reported by The Cable, Adebayo said that this same drama happening every election year does not reflect progress.
He said that former President Goodluck Jonathan saved Nigeria's democracy in 2015 when he called Muhammadu Buhari to concede to him, and that it is time for Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi to demonstrate their love for Nigeria and call Tinubu.
He said - "Goodluck Jonathan saved us in 2025. It is now time for Atiku and Peter Obi to show that they love Nigeria. Time to call Bola Tinubu is now. I have more grievances than all the presidential candidates combined. I'm least satisfied with the results. I am dissatisfied with the choice of the electorate. It is the prerogative of the people to make unwise choices, but the choice is clear. We can be more honest all around."
What do you have to say about this statement from the SDP candidate that Atiku and Obi should call Tinubu? Feel free to share your thoughts with us.
