Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State on Wednesday congratulated the President-Elect, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari for winning Saturday’s presidential election.
Yuguda, who applauded Buhari at a news conference in Bauchi, also congratulated all the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who won the National Assembly elections in the state.
“I wish to extend and convey my sincere congratulation to Gen Muhammadu Buhari and all the APC candidates from Bauchi state who won the national assembly elections to represent the state in the national assembly.
“I wish to especially congratulate my younger brother Malam Ali Wakili, who won the Bauchi South Senatorial seat for which I was a contestant.`
He advised all contestants that lost in the national assembly election against litigation, but submit to the will of Allah and pray for the success of those who won.
He advised politicians to emulate the exemplary leadership of the president-elect.
“In contest there must be a winner and a looser. The losers following INEC announcement of result must submit to the will of Allah, rather than proceeding for litigations, which would be bad luck for our polity.
“All those who lost their seat from all other parties must submit to the will of Allah and pray for the success of those who won. Another chance will present itself.
“We must learn to be (our) brothers’ keepers and understand that there should not be any bitterness in politics, especially if you lose election.
“We must learn from the matured, exemplary and Godly politics of the President-Elect, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, who since 2003 has been contesting the presidency and had in between, never shown bitterness or hatred to his opponent, until Allah finally gave him the chance to rule our dear nation Nigeria.“
