"Thank Your Lucky Stars, Jonathan Accepted Election Results"- Fani-Kayode Tells APC



Peoples Democratic Presidential  Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO said Friday that President Goodluck Jonathan was still committed to conducting free, fair and credible elections.
According to PDP, the opposition should count itself lucky that President Jonathan did not reject the outcome of March 28 presidential election and refused to go to court to challenge the results.
In a statement, Friday,  by the  Director of  Media and Publicy, PDPPCO,  Chief Femi Fani-Kayode   said, “They should thank their lucky stars that we have a President who saw fit to concede victory and behave like a gentleman rather than cause a stir by rejecting the results and going to court.”
Fani-Kayode described allegations by the All Progressive Congress (APC) that President  Jonathan  planned to rig today’s governorship election in Lagos in favour of the candidate of the PDP, Mr Jimi Agbaje were far from the truth.
According to Fani- Kayode, the APC  in panic mode because it knows that Agbaje will  win the election, adding that this was  the first time in 16 years that the APC together with the opposition was facing a formidable challenge from a governorship candidate of the PDP, Mr Agbaje.
Fani- Kayode said, “Once again the APC has degenerated into a party of liars who have little or no shame. It is not true that the President has any rigging plan for Lagos and neither do we need any such plan because our party is very strong there.
“The problem that the APC has and the reason that they make such asinine and stupid allegations is because they actually believe that they own Lagos state and all those that live there.
“They are now in a state of panic because for the first time in 16 years they are facing a formidable challenge and they know that Jimi Agbaje of the PDP is likely to win. The truth is that there was no secret meeting in which rigging was planned by the President and neither is it true that materials were smuggled in to rig Lagos state.
“The only people that are interested in rigging and in milking any cash cows are the APC themselves and they can rest assured that we will resist them at all levels. We will not only keep them on their toes at the Federal level by being eternally vigilant but we will also provide them with the most aggressive, relentless, focused and assertive opposition that Nigeria has ever known.
“President Jonathan simply conceded defeat in the Presidential election but this does not in any way mean that we have lost our nerve and neither does it represent a capitulation of our convictions or a collapse of our firm resolve.
