Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has revealed that Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu has set up committees to reconcile his camp with his challengers who lost to him in last Saturday’s presidential election.
Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress polled 8,794,726 votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, who came second after polling 6,984,520 votes in the election.
Peter Obi of the Labour Party polled 6,101,533 votes to come third, while the New Nigeria Peoples Party’s Rabiu Kwankwaso came fourth after polling 1,496,687 votes.
But in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, in Akure, the Ondo governor said Tinubu had set up committees to meet with his fellow contestants in the election.
According to Akeredolu, the committees comprise elders of their party, APC, who “would soon begin to meet with co-contestants of the President-elect in a bid to assuage their loss in the just concluded Presidential Election”.
He noted that all the aggrieved persons will be “met for reconciliation”.
