He said it was the will of God that the All Progressives Congress produced the president of the country in 2015.Okupe, said it took Buhari 30 years to come back to power, it would take PDP much less to do so. He said PDP was bowed, but not cowed.
He wrote, “It has pleased the Almighty God to give victory to Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the APC and the President-elect. We accept this as the will of God and I personally congratulate the General on his success.We have run a good race and fought a gallant battle. We are bowed but not cowed. We lost the crown but we gained a trophy. The PDP family must not despair; if it took General Buhari 30 years to come back to power, it should take us much less. For the opportunities we have had, we give God all the glory. The strife is over for the next four years only. We rejoice with APC and the people of Nigeria on the process we have jointly made in our democratic journey. For our democracy to endure, it is important that the winner clearly emerges while the loser concedes with equanimity.Certainly, we will be back. We will overcome this defeat and rise to power and glory in the twinkle of an eye.”
