As Bola Tinubu takes the lead in the ongoing APC presidential primaries, the Chairman of Yemi Osinbajo media Council Barr Richard Akinola has conceded defeat and congratulated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory at the poll.
Read his post below:
Congratulations, Asiwaju Tinubu, the presumed winner of the primaries. In any contest, there must be a winner. However, I’m very proud of my choice of support in the person of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
I have no iota of regret over my support for him. It was a privilege to play a pivotal role for him during the process. I would gladly do it over and over again. It’s a matter of conviction. And for all our supporters and other volunteers who worked assiduously, day and night on the PYO project, God bless you all. I’m so proud of all of you. As l often say, God rules in the affairs of men and He has a purpose for what just happened.
Understandably, many of you are dispirited and downcast but do not let your heart be troubled. There must be a reason God allowed this. It may not be manifest to us now but later as He is all-knowing. I’m unfazed, unbowed, and VERY PROUD of PYO. Our supporters, abeg, make una shake it off.
No, be say person die
Life goes on. No, you.
