Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has called on Atiku Abubakar, to show the spirit of sportsmanship and call President Buhari to concede defeat.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officially declared President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the 2019 presidential election, defeating Atiku Abubakar of the PDP with over three million votes.
The president polled 15,191,847 votes from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and the 36 states in the country to defeat his main Challenger Atiku Abubakar who got 11,262,978 votes.
Rochas Okorocha in an interview with newsmen in Owerri, the state capital this morning, said wisdom calls for Atiku to congratulate President Buhari on his re-election victory.
“Wisdom calls for the PDP candidate to congratulate him (Buhari), to show appreciation because when you don’t do that, people will begin to think that you are doing this for selfish reasons. Nigeria is bigger than all of us, leaders must learn to make sacrifices where possible, not to their own comfort but to the comfort of the nation. That is what leadership is all about,” he said
