Written by Olarotimi Oshin on February 20, 2023
The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, is advising Nigerians to strictly accept the outcome of this year’s elections for the survival of democracy in Nigeria.
According to the forum, there must be winners and losers, stressing that whichever way it goes; no one should attempt to disrespect the decision of Nigerians by condemning or rejecting the outcome.
A statement issued by the Secretary General of the forum, Mallam Murtala Aliyu, said any attempt to reject the outcome of the election would be a cruel attack on the country’s democracy and would be regarded as unacceptable and inimical to democratic process.
The Forum advised the media to play a responsible role in dousing any tension that may arise as a consequence of the elections and results as Nigerians should ensure a peaceful transition from one civilian administration to another.
