The national leadership of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, ACPN has facilitated with President Muhammadu Buhari, over what it described as a well-deserved victory at the just concluded presidential election, urging him to form a government of National Unity.

The National Chairman of ACPN, Alhaji Ganiyu O. Galadima said, on Friday in Abuja, that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security agencies, political parties and all Nigerians deserved commendations for giving peace a chance to some extent before, during and after the announcement of results.

Daily Trust reports that the ACPN was one of the political parties that adopted President Buhari as its candidate and mobilized for his re-election.

The party also urged the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to concede defeat or channel his grievances through appropriate quarters without degenerating into security threat in the country.

“President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory is a well-deserved one, considering his popularity, acceptance across board and his performances in the last three and half years. We, as a party, had expressed our support for him even before the election and we thank God that our support did not go in vain.

“We therefore, urge Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the PDP to see Buhari’s victory as the will of the majority of Nigerians. The people have spoken. We expect him as a democrat to concede defeat and move on; bearing in mind that it is God that gives power. We also believe that Alhaji Abubakar and his party have rights to challenge the outcome but we advise that such should be done in a peaceful manner without putting the security of Nigeria and Nigerians at risk,” he said.
