The outgoing president’s media aide Garba Shehu has said that Bola Tinubu is grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari for allowing him to win the February 25 election.

He this in an interview with NTA on Wednesday, May 24.

“When he (Tinubu) took his certificate from INEC, the first thing he did was that he flew to Daura and showed it to the president.

“The incoming president Bola Tinubu never gets tired of saying that the president allowed him to win. It is very significant. He allowed him to win in a free and fair process," Shehu said.

Shehu said Tinubu’s incoming administration would be “the same government” run by the All Progressives Congress.

“What to expect between the incoming and the outgoing as of today, it’s even a more perfect relationship,” said Mr Shehu. “It is going to be the same government, different administrations. It’s APC.”

Presently, the outcome of the election is being challenged by the opposition parties, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour party.

They claim the election was marred by irregularities.
