Tinubu has called for calm among Lagos residents.
Naijanewshub.com.ng gathered that the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has appealed to the people of Lagos State to be calm and eschew any act that can lead to breakdown of law and order.
Tinubu said the outcome of the election in Lagos, where Labour Party won the presidential election should not be a source of provocation.
Opposition Labour party earned more votes in Lagos State to defeat the ruling APC and the PDP.
He added that the beauty of democracy is that people have a right to vote for the candidate of their choice.
The APC candidate in a statement on Monday further said that as a democrat, he was bound to accept the outcome of any election whether favourable or not.
The statement was signed by the APC Presidential Campaign Council’s Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Bayo Onanuga.
According to the statement, Tinubu expressed serious concern over reports of violence in parts of the state especially reported attacks on some traders.
The former Lagos State Governor condemned any form of violence against people of any ethnic group in Lagos.
“The fact that the APC narrowly lost Lagos State to another party should not be the reason for violence. As a democrat, you win some, you lose some. We must allow the process to continue unhindered across the country while we maintain peace and decorum,” Tinubu stressed.
