Buhari urges peaceful celebrations, warns against attacks on PDP

Muhammadu Buhari talking
President Muhammadu Buhari

The candidate of the APC in the just-concluded elections, Muhammadu Buhari, has issued an interim message of thanks and gratitude to Nigerians for choosing him and his party over and above the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, the incumbent President, President Jonathan Goodluck.

The party declared victory after Mr. Jonathan called Mr. Buhari at 5:15pm to make a concession and congratulate the winner.

A statement issued Tuesday evening by the Director Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Garba Shehu, said the mood of the country as well as its current state did not warrant the type of wild celebrations reportedly going on in some cities across the country.

Mr. Buhari said anybody happy with the victory of the APC in the presidential election will not be involved in the molestation of opponents or the destruction of their property.

“He or she is not with me, whoever does that,” Mr. Buhari said.

He is due to make a major acceptance speech in the coming hours.

    • adigheji

      Generak BUHARI my superior Officer congratulations. This time u will move Nigeria forward instead of GEJ who moved Nigeria backward.

      • Total

        That was not a graceful statement. That is what Buhari is talking about. You need to civil and be cautious in your comments.

  • Chris1408

    Let’s pray Buhari will have the knowledge and strength to move the country forward. That he have the wisdom not to surround himself with evil people. GEJ was a good man, but surrounded by bad and evil people that led him astray

    • Sam

      For 6 years? He’s a bad man and bad omen!

    • Tunsj

      Well said. The people around him are terrible.

  • IEginic

    Peacefully celebrations all through. Remember that those opponents cannot be happy for now. Don’t do anything to provoke them the more. That is the beauty of democracy and the power of your PVC that was made possible for you by the same opponent.

  • dd

    Don’t expect miracle? An old man can’t think anything only to blame GEJ for looting Nigeria dry. Better go and farm and stop celebrate as 80 years old man can’t think anything to help you out.

    • tundemash

      • kiza

        I wouldnt know how to describe you…the elections have come and gone; Buhari has won the presidential … Jonathan has conceded defeat (first in history), you seem not to understand the tide of the season…are you daft to label somebody e-rat. You know what! You are E-BUFOON!

        • tundemash

          Shut up . Let me enjoy my hard won victory. E-rats like you living on amnesty grants do not understand the implication of this.
          If not that the PVC blocked PDP’s rigging machine, you would have been here celebrating the victory of evil forces.
          You are free to mourn while I should be free to celebrate Mr. Sad Man !

          Dia is God O !!

          • Tunsj

            Do not pay him any attention. Keep on enjoying your victory.

          • tundemash

            o se jare !

            Meanwhile Baby-P is still unconsolable at the villa o !

          • Tunsj

            Welcome. Keep on posting those good pictures.

          • tundemash

            OBJ na wicked man O !

          • dario

            I know there are fools like you from a very poor home. What do you have as a resource compared to those e-rats you labeled?

          • tundemash

            creek rat , if u have any shame at all, u should be in hiding. You agents of darkness have been defeated and put to shame !!!!

          • kiza

            I see!; the trail shows you are somebody of little mental strength. I regret joining issues with you. Its only E-BUFFONS that can behave and react the way you do…man!, you lack character! You should go back to cave dwelling….

          • tundemash

            Cl0wn ….unfortunate your last hope ., MEND, just congratulated our president-elect Buhari….so what is next for your hopeless life ?

            It looks like you still haven’t realise the enormity of the tragedy that has befell you and your household since yesterday. If in doubt, ask Baby-P; she’s been unconsolable since yesterday. That is somebody who knows, without amnesty freebie, your future is bleak.

      • Tunsj

        Love this poster.

    • emeka M

      Atleast he would not be as weak and clueless as jonathan. IF he turns out to be, we will vote him out.
      better to change a product that is cause you damages than to keep using it, why not test others and see if there would be better results.

    • Ekerete Etukudo

      Mr. dd, you’re not any more a staunch GEJ supporter like I am. The reality now is that Nigerians have spoken, (and I don’t care where your allegiance lies) and you must respect the voice of the people. Sentiments aside, Nigeria is the only country we have, and no matter our differences, we should all support GMB to ensure a better Nigeria. And PDP stalwarts and supporters (myself included) should do some serious soul searching, figure out where we failed, and strive to rectify the wrongs. And serious kudos to GEJ for conceding to GMB.


        You are a patriotic Nigerian and may God bless you.

      • mahmudu

        You are a real patriot of this country.

    • Sam

      Shame on you and your lack of respect. The masses of Nigeria has spoken and they are better and wiser than your generation generations’ and geneology!!!

    • mahmudu

      His worst will be better than GEJS goodies insha Allah.

  • Taster

    Sai Buhari!


      Weren’t you the one insulting Buhari?, chei their is God ooo. Meanwhile welcome to the Change train. BEWARE ALL CORRUPT POLITICIANS YOU SHALL NOT ESCAPE THE BULALA OF BUHARI

    • Tunsj

      Glad that you change your tune when Buhari won.

      • Taster

        I`m a democrat any day , sai buhari.

        We are looking at him to apologize for his 2011 misgivings.

        • Tunsj

          You will wait till 3015.

          • Taster

            Then mark it he would regret ever ruling this nation – this is about lives cut short in their prime.

  • Abdulazeez Oyibo

    Our GOC! No plenty talk. Time for action!

  • Taster
