He disclosed further that “now that the elections had been won and lost, the work ahead to build a greater Nigeria that we can all be proud of and bequeath to unborn generations remains the duty of all of us.This is the more reason why those who couldn’t make it in this election should accept the olive branch as extended to them by the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
