Alhaji Abayomi Nurain Mumuni, one-time governorship candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Lagos State, has urged Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to accept the outcome of the Feb. 23 presidential election in good faith.
Mumuni gave the advice on Wednesday in Lagos, urging Atiku, the PDP presidential candidate in the election, to refrain from taking unconstitutional steps.
In a statement issued by Mr Rasheed Abubakar, his media aide, Mumuni implored Atiku to stay within the confines of the law, and resist attempts to nudge him into stoking the embers of electoral crisis.
“Instead, he should approach the courts only, and pursue his electoral ambitions only within the ambience of the law,” he said.
Mumini is presently the president of the London-based Wall Street Global Finance Limited and a member, The Security Institute, UK.
He is also author of ‘The Global Terrorism and its effects on Humanity’ and ‘Demand by Terror’.
Mumuni also advised President Muhammadu Buhari, urging him to pursue a renewed drive at unifying the country.
He urged him to maintain a “no victor, no vanquished” stance in respect of his victory at the polls.
Mumuni particularly called attention to the ongoing clean-up of Ogoniland and the construction of the Second Niger Bridge.
He urged the President to speed up both projects to further deepen the feeling of acceptance among the people of the Southsouth and Southeast.
“This election is not about winners and losers. It is about all of us, as a single, indivisible national entity, moving to the next level of economic, social, infrastructural and collective success.
“As such, President Buhari needs to make visible overtures to the people of the Southsouth and Southeast, so as to further boost their sense of belonging and reassure them of their rightful place in Project Nigeria.
“I particularly suggest speeding up work on the ongoing Ogoni cleanup and the Second Niger Bridge in that regard,” he said.
Mumuni also urged Buhari to work even harder to help take Nigeria to the next level, as promised in his campaign manifesto.
“President Buhari’s victory at the polls definitely calls for celebration.
“He, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and elected All Progressives Congress (APC) legislators are well deserving of our felicitations and best wishes.
“I urge the President and his team to intensify their efforts with regards to the APC Next Level agenda, as outlined during the campaigns,” he said.
