The President-elect of Nigeria Bola Tinubu has condemned what he described as isolated cases of infractions, ethnic slurs, and violence that trailed the 2023 General Elections, declaring that elections were now over for the healing process to begin.

These came as The Washington Post commended the general elections, stating that despite some obvious flaws in the process, the democratic system had held and was holding far better, so far, than might have been expected.

This is even as the Sultan of Sokoto Mohammed Sa’ad Abubakar III, and President-General of Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs NSCIA asked those not happy about the outcome of the just-concluded general elections to seek redress in court and avoid the violent protest.

However, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, in a swift reaction, dismissed Tinubu’s call for healing after a violent election as the height of hypocrisy.
