We fought the good fight, we live to fight another day – FFK

Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, on Wednesday, congratulated the president-elect General Muhammadu Buhari on his win at the presidential polls stating that his previous statements referring to the General and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the electioneering period, were simply what was required of him and his job.

“There was absolutely nothing personal as regards this Directorate or myself. I had nothing personal against anybody.

“I was simply doing my job for which I have no regrets and I wish them well and I sincerely hope that they will take Nigeria to a level that we can all be proud of,” he said.

He applauded the President for his gracious concession and prayed for continued peace in the country under Buhari.

“We also wish to commend our President, President Goodluck Jonathan, for having the courage to concede that he has lost the election at the earliest moment and also for being able to stand up and rise above party politics and being able to speak like a statesman.

“May God grant each and everyone of us peace. May He watch over our nation.

“May He guide our President for the next two months whilst he is still in power and thereafter and may He guide and lead the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, in the herculean task that lies ahead for him.

“My prayer is that he brings our nation together, heals the wounds and that he builds the bridges in terms of religion, ethnicity and region that he needs to build in order for us to make Nigeria a better place and to ensure that Nigeria becomes a great country that she is destined to be,” he said.

Mr. Fani-Kayode said he had no regret for serving President Jonathan and the PDP and advised the party and its supporters to remain steadfast in their drive.

“And having lost, it does not mean that it is the end to the world, it just means that we need to re-group, re-organise ourselves and begin the process all over again because another elections will come in a few years’ time.

“And that is where we are today. We have conceded that we have lost. We acknowledge the fact that we fought a good fight. We do not have any fears about the future.

“We did the right thing during the campaign. We have no regrets about our candidate or the way in which we conducted our campaign and we will live to fight another day,” he said.
