A Special Adviser on Media and Strategic Communications to the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Alake, while analyzing the success of the just-concluded February 25 elections as well as the victory of the next President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, stated that the election was credible enough because no one would have believed that his principal would lose a state like Lagos.
This is coming after many claims of manipulations and rigging in the electoral process, as speculated by contending political parties and other Nigerians.
Dele Alake, while speaking during an exclusive interview with the TVC News, said, "Asiwaju is a very magnanimous man in defeat and much more in victory. He is an honorable man, and he has always demonstrated this. About a week ago, who could have believed that an Asiwaju, as the political colossus that he is, would lose his election in Lagos State? Of course, that was unthinkable; nobody could have believed it.
However, it did happen, and we are still studying a lot of things about that, but did you hear him making a whimper or galavanting all over the place and calling for fire and brimstones? He has taken it in stride as the true democrat that he is."
