Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State, has called on the defeated Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his party, to accept the outcome of the 2019 presidential election in good faith.

He also called on Atiku and the PDP to support the incoming administration in the onerous task of nation building.
“Democracy is about the will of the Almighty as expressed by voters through the ballot box.

“We thank the Almighty Allah for the peaceful way in which the elections were conducted.
“President Buhari means well for this nation and this year’s Presidential election is a vote of confidence in the change agenda of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“The election confirms that both the President and indeed the nation, are on the right course of national rebirth,” NAN quoted the governor as saying.
He pledged the loyalty of government and people of Bauchi State, just as he called on the people of the state to come out and discharge their civic duties during the March 9 Governorship and State Assembly polls.
