Election Results: Be patient, President urges

President Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerians to exercise patience as they wait for the Independent National Electoral Commission to collate and announce results of the just concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Jonathan, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded election made the call in a post on his facebook page.

Anxiety has been gripping Nigerians over what many saw as the slow pace of collating the results across the country with political parties making claims and counter-claims.

President Jonathan urged Nigerians not to embark on any acts that could lead to breakdown of law and order.

He, however, advised them to wait patiently for the results the same way they waited to vote on Saturday.

The President wrote, “We waited patiently to vote in these elections, now I want to urge all Nigerians to also wait patiently for the Independent National Electoral Commission to collate and announce results.

“We must ensure that we do not get involved in acts that breach our peaceful co-existence that we patriotically demonstrated during the elections.

“May God bless Nigeria”
