Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu in his victory speech at Eagle Square, the venue of the APC presidential primary, disclosed that he didn’t anticipate winning.
The former Governor of Lagos state commended those who stepped down for him, adding that those that didn’t support him have nothing to fear.
“Let me not punish my president too long. The competition you offered made our party stronger and made me better. I am grateful to all of you.
“I hold no grudges and grievances. Let us work together to defeat PDP. They had 16 years, they depleted our resources, and they left us with hunger. They are the agent of poverty, terror, and lying.
“Those who didn’t support me have nothing to fear. I hold no grudges. Let us all work together.”
Apologizing to President Buhari, he added;
“Please forgive me for taking you this long. I didn’t expect to win but I won. Today is the only day I can punish you.”
