The candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the just concluded Benue South senatorial election, Comrade Daniel Onjeh, has insisted that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerged winner of the presidential election “by the decision of the majority of the Nigerian electorates”.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Saturday, Onjeh highlighted the significance of Tinubu’s victory, saying it reflected in the geographical spread of his votes.
According to him: “The significance of Asiwaju’s mandate is reflected in the geographical spread of the votes he garnered, winning the South West, North West and North Central; and coming second in most of the other zones; hence surpassing the 25% threshold in 25 states (including the FCT).
“Although he lost in the FCT, he won in 29 out of 36 states, beating his closest rival by a wide margin.”
Onjeh, the immediate past Board Chairman of Projects Development Institute, PRODA, urged Nigerian youths to “brace up for a greater role in governance under the Tinubu Presidency, by organizing themselves as a focused pressure group with clarity of vision, realizable goals, sound objectives and a comprehensive plan of action.”
