President Muhammadu Buhari heartily congratulates the winner of the (2023) Presidential Election, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Reacting to the results just announced, President Buhari said:

“I congratulate His Excellency Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory. Elected by the people, he is the

best person for the job. I shall now work with him and his team to ensure an orderly handover of

“The election was Africa’s largest democratic exercise. In a region that has undergone backsliding

and military coups in recent years, this election demonstrates democracy’s continued relevance

and capability to deliver for the people it serves.


“Within Nigeria, the results reveal democracy’s ripening in our country. Never has the electoral

map shifted so drastically in one cycle. In the presidential elections, states across the nation’s

regions changed colour. Some of you may have noticed my home state among them.



Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Nigerian President-Elect.

The winning candidate did not carry his own home state either. That happens during a competitive

election. Votes and those that cast them cannot be taken for granted. Each must be earned.

Competition is good for our democracy. Undoubtedly, the people’s decision has been rendered

in the results, we look at today.


“That is not to say the exercise was without fault. For instance, there were technical problems with

electronic transmission of the results. Of course, there will be areas that need work to bring further

transparency and credibility to the voting procedure. However, none of the issues registered

represent a challenge to the freeness and fairness of the elections.

“I know some politicians and candidates may not agree with this view. That too is fine. If any

candidate believes they can prove the fraud they claim is committed against them, bring the

evidence forward. If they cannot, we must conclude that the election was indeed the people’s

will – no matter how hard it may be for the losers to accept.


If they need to challenge, please take it to the courts, not the streets. “However, to do the latter

means they are not doing it in the interest of the people but rather to inflame, to put people in

harm’s way and all for personal, selfish gains.


“After a degree of polarization that necessarily accompanies any election, it is now time to come

together and act responsibly. I call on all candidates to remember the peace pledge they signed

just days before the election. Do not undermine the credibility of INEC. Let us now move forward

as one. The people have spoken.”
