The presidential candidate of KOWA Party, Sina Fagbenro-Byron, on Wednesday, February 27, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to focus more on poverty alleviation and development of critical infrastructure in his second term.
Fagbenro-Byron said this while reacting in Lagos to the outcome of the presidential and National Assembly elections.
Fagbenro-Byron told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the citizens of the country have spoken and whatever the validated majority decision is, it must be respected by the rest of the candidates.
“I would however caution us to quickly allow the politics to pass so that real development can commence in earnest.
“We have some serious work to do and I hope that President Buhari who has been declared winner will realise this and get to work as soon as possible,” he said while commending other presidential candidates and his party supporters for their efforts and doggedness.
“My dear friends and compatriots, the Presidential elections have come and gone and I would like to sincerely thank all of those that supported my effort and especially those who actually voted for Kowa party and myself.
“Without prejudice to winner, I would like to congratulate all participants for our efforts, hard work and patriotism.
“Permit me however, to mention my colleagues and their parties whose performances at the very first attempt at national elections deserve commendation.
"I commend Kingsley Mohgalu of YPP, Fela Durotoye of ANN and Omoyele Sowore for the efforts and doggedness. Well done gentlemen,” he said.
He explained that KOWA Party tried its best to win the presidential election, but noted that “those who feel disappointed at our performance, (less than expected) of our party and my candidacy, I would say we did put in our very best.
“We made our offer to Nigerians, unfortunately too many Nigerians for various reasons felt otherwise.
“Human beings can only do their best, which may or may not be good enough or acceptable enough, it is however, God that has the final say.
