“I believe we are going to win this election,” Kashim said while urging the opposition to accept the outcome in good faith.

 Shettima said that the most important thing is that Nigerians have more that unite them as a nation and needed to work for the greater good of the nation.

“The longer journey is the call for national unity and progress.

“Tinubu has that generosity of spirit, maturity, experience and exposure not to gloat over victory, ” Shettima said.

On some of the challenges experienced which affected his chance to vote early, Shettima said it’s normal in view of huge tasks involved in organising election in a populous country like Nigeria. 

“Its too early to give judgment on INEC, we need to give them the benefit of doubt.

“I believed INEC are pragmatic enough to extend the voting up to 6pm or even 10pm to enable the public exercise their right to vote, ” Kashim said.
