Prince Adewole Adebayo, the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party(SDP) has explained why he did not challenge the outcome of the just concluded presidential election in court.
The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi and his People Democratic Party counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday in separate world press conferences revealed their intention to challenge INEC’s declaration of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the winner of the February 25.
But the SDP candidate, Adebayo who spoke during a programme on ARISE TV said though he had evidence of being robbed at the poll, he didn’t win the election.
Adebayo also said he congratulated Tinubu and accepted him as the President-elect in obedience to the Constitution.
“My position is that Bola Ahmed Tinubu wrongly or rightly has been declared the President-elect, we who ran, who have followers, my followers are angry with me that I did that but that is leadership because the duty is to stabilise the situation and then the law will take its cause.”
