Re-election: TUC urges Buhari to spread dividends of democracy across Nigeria

WorldStage NewsOnline—-Following the success of President Muhammadu Buhari at poll, the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) has advised the President to ensure that all sections of the country feel the impact of policies and programmes in his second term in Office.

The TUC Secretary-General, Mr Musa-Lawal Ozigi, gave the advice on Thursday in a congratulatory  letter to  the Buhari on  his re-election.

Recall that Buhari got more than 15 million votes to defeat his closest challenger and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, who polled  nearly 11. 3 million votes in the just-concluded presidential election.

“We write to congratulate you on your victory at the just-concluded Presidential and National Assembly Elections. As President-Elect, you are now elevated above partisanship.

“We appeal to the President-elect to be magnanimous in victory; embrace everyone, irrespective of party affiliation and bring in good hands from across the parties to build a country we shall all be proud of.

“We equally rejoice with your party and INEC that we are not derided by observers for incompetence in the electoral process,” Ozigi said.

He noted that it was a keenly contested election, adding that the victory would provide opportunity to consolidate on the socio-economic development started nearly four years ago.
