The All Progressives Congress’ (APC) Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu said his biggest wish for new Kenya’s President-elect, William Ruto, is that he unites his country.
Deputy President Ruto was declared the winner of Kenya’s presidential election amid dramatic scenes on Monday.
He narrowly beat his rival, Raila Odinga, taking 50.5% of the vote, according to the official results.
Reacting to his victory on Tuesday, Tinubu congratulated Ruto and his UDA party on his election as the next president of Kenya.
“I also congratulate and commend the people of Kenya on the peaceful conduct of the elections. While urging all Kenyans to accept this result and shun violence, I enjoin them to seek peaceful adjudication of all disputes through the Kenyan legal system.
“This shall be the greatest testament to the progress Kenya has made in strengthening the core institutions of its democracy,” he said.
Tinubu added that “It is my prayer that as President, Mr. Ruto will unite the country, bringing all Kenyans together to move their great nation forward and implementing the progressive policies and reforms desired by the people.
“I wish Mr. Ruto and all the people of Kenya the very best and look forward to a continued beneficial and cordial relationship between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Republic of Kenya.”
