According to report reaching oyogist.com, the Nigerian All Progressive Congress (APC) has others the United States President, Donald Trump, to emulate the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, after loosing the presidential election.
The party made this known in a statement released by it Secretary of Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, John Akpanudoedehe, titled ‘The integrity of a leader is as important as strong institutions’.
The statement read, “The events of the past 72hrs in the United States of America is to say the least condemnable. Over time, the elections of the US have been used as a touchstone for elections in other democracies.
“It is settled that strong institutions are fundamental to the sustenance of democracies. However, this US election saga strongly underscores the fact that the integrity of the country’s leader essentially complements the workings of these institutions.
“President Muhammadu Buhari contested and lost elections a couple of times and followed the process through to the Supreme Court on all accounts. This is an outstanding credential of a true democrat.
“Upon ultimately gaining victory in 2015, the APC-led administration has carried out fundamental reforms to strengthen our institutions.
“For instance, non-interference in the functions of INEC. The APC has contested elections; won some, lost some without splitting hairs. In fact, at some point, the APC lost over 5 states to the PDP, yet we allowed democracy to prevail. We have remained resolute in our belief that in every electoral contest, popular will must prevail.”
