Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President, and People Democratic Party (PDP)‘s Presidential aspirant has urged the All Progressive Congress (APC) to accept the outcome of the July 14 elections in good fate, if they lost in Ekiti State.
Atiku, who made this known while visiting Gov. Ayo Fayose in Ado Ekiti, said that losing an election to a rival party should be seen in the light of the concession to defeat by former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
Atiku was accompanied by the members of the PDP Governorship Campaign Council.
Akitu also applauded the level of preparation for the July 14th elections.
“We are satisfied that the Peoples Democratic Party is prepared for this election.
“ We hope that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will accept the outcome of the election.
“ They should be democratic for the first time.
” We have seen how democratic they are, but for the first time in 2015, we have the opposition party taking over from the ruling party, we expect them to do the same,’’ Atiku said.
In his response, the governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, said that the people of the state have vowed to defend their vote, adding that the party is doing all it can to ensure victory at the poll.
” They (PDP leaders) are here because they know that PDP has won this election. Everyone is on the same page with us.
“We are looking forward to observers from all over the world because I am the voice they want to suppress. We are prepared for the election and we are going to win,’’ he said.
NAN reports that Among those in Atiku’s delegation were Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, former Senate President, David Mark, former Kano State governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, former governor of Ogun, Gbenga Daniel, and Sen. Eyinnaya Abaribe.
