Trade Union Congress, TUC, has described President Goodluck Jonathan’s congratulatory message to his opponent, General Muhammadu Buhari, as a proof that election is indeed not a do-or-die affair.
TUC president, Comrade Bobboi Kaigama and secretary general, Comrade Musa Lawal, yesterday in Lagos said it was impressed with the president for providing a level playing ground for all.
Congratulating the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, on victory at the polls, TUC said, “We particularly applaud the president-elect for his doggedness and refusal to quit despite the defeat he suffered in the last three elections.
“The congress sees General Buhari’s resolve to contest the 2015 general elections as a mark of his belief in the project Nigeria, and his unflinching desire to contribute his quota in ensuring that he continues with the good work of his predecessor and to even surpass it.
“The congress wishes to warn that this is not the time to fight, this is not the time for name calling, this is not the time to witch-hunt anybody, nor a time to spend our money on advertorials. This is rather the time to work. This is the time to fix the Ajaokuta steel mill company, the roads and create jobs for our army of youths. This is the time to restore our national carrier (Nigerian Airways). This is the time to tame impunity at all levels. Most importantly, this is the time to restore the dignity of our currency and provide solution to workers agitations. The list is endless.”
The congress also urged the president-elect to involve good hands, party affiliations notwithstanding all for the good of the country.
