Doyin Okupe, senior special assistant to the president on public affairs, is certain that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will recover from losing last weekend’s presidential election.

Okupe, who directed several attacks at Muhammadu Buhari and other stalwarts of the All Progressives Congress (APC) before the election, described APC’s victory as an act of God.

He said if it took Buhari 30 years to come back to power, then the PDP has less than that period to be a force to reckon with.

“We accept this as the will of God and I personally congratulate the general for his success,” he wrote on Facebook.


“It has pleased the Almighty God to give victory to Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the APC and the president-elect. 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 aal the Glory. To millions of our supporters, we say thanks

“To those who are our adversaries, the battle has been fought, and it has been won and lost. The strife is over for the next four years only. We rejoice with APC and the people of Nigeria on the progress 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 again to power and glory.”
