The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Abdullahi Adamu has admitted that the Presidential and National Assembly elections held on Saturday, February 25 weren't perfect.

Adamu made the comment at a meeting of APC National Working Committee with Bola Tinubu, the President-elect, Kashim Shettima, the Vice President-elect, and members-elect of the National Assembly.

The closed-door meeting was held at the State House Banquet Hall in Abuja.

Adamu congratulated the elected officeholders as he insisted that they deserve the joy of victory after winning the February 25 elections.

Adamu said, “I very heartily congratulate all the distinguished men and women elected. I salute you all. You’re the new team Nigeria. From May 29 this year, the burden of our national unity, peace, and development will rest on your shoulders as a team.

“It’s fair and honourable to admit that the Feb. 25 elections were not perfect. We didn’t set out to conduct perfect elections.

“World history has no instances of perfect elections. Like all other democratic nations, we set out to conduct free, fair, and credible elections. This we did.

“From the results of Feb. 25, 2023, general elections announced so far by the electoral umpire, INEC, the APC won the presidency, clean and clear, and a majority in both chambers of the National Assembly.”
