Those upset about 2023 election outcome should wait for 2027 – Smart Adeyemi
Senator Smart Adeyemi has described the 2023 elections as
one of the best in the country, calling on those upset about the outcome of the
exercise to try next time.
The All Progressives Congress (APC)’s Bola Tinubu was
declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election but the opposition
including Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) have challenged the outcome of the exercise.
However, Senator Smart maintained that the exercise was one
of the freest in the nation’s history even though it was not perfect.
“I speak my mind at any point in time. And let me tell you
the truth, I hold the view that this election was free to a large extent and
better than the previous election. Those who feel bitter can just wait for the
next election,” he said on Thursday while fielding questions on Channels
He argued that Tinubu and his running mate Kashim Shettima
are the most trusted to lead the country.
Senator Adeyemi said the former Lagos State governor has
invested in people and also built strong ties across Nigeria thus his victory
at the polls was not surprising.
“The fact of the matter is that Asiwaju and Shettima are the
popular contestants and they won,” the Kogi West lawmaker said.
According to him, the grievances from the opposition is
expected but he insisted that the poll was free.
“There is no doubt that once there is an election, there
would be divisions,” the APC lawmaker said.
