- Hon Olusegun Olulade commends the Nigerian youth for playing major roles in the re-election of President Buhari
- Olulade notes that no election across the world is free of any challenge as he commends INEC
- The lawmaker commends his party and urges the opposition work with the government
Hon Olusegun Olulade, the lawmaker representing Epe constituency 2 at the Lagos state House of Assembly, on Wednesday, February 27, described the outcome of the presidential election in Nigeria as victory for the masses of the country, many of whom are youths.
He also described President Muhammadu Buhari as a leader in the quest for a new Nigeria that can represent and treat everyone equally.
Olulade said this in a statement to Legit.ng while congratulating President Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of the APC elected across Nigeria at the Saturday, February 23, general election in the country.
“The tussle was between the common masses and elite beneficiaries of a corrupt environment, and the good thing is that the masses won.
“The public awareness has become so high that the masses voice also reflected in the National Assembly voting, showing that the people detest a legislature that constitutes perennial blockade to the good cause of the executive, as seen in the component of the current National Assembly.”
The lawmaker, who commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for a job well done, noted that no election is completely perfect across the world.
“Not even American election is perfect, therefore, we need to commend INEC for painstakingly conducting a free, fair and credible election this far.
“We should not allow anyone to run down our electoral system particularly with disparaging comments from any international community or country,” he said while urging the former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to exercise his acclaimed democratic spirit and maturity by congratulating President Buhari and ignoring those trying to drift him towards chaos by rejecting the results of the election.

Olulade noted that service is not only about holding public office.
Olulade warned that any public protest arising from PDP’s rejection will paint the party in bad light and show it as desperate to return to power by every means.
