President-elect Bola Tinubu has charged All Progressives Congress (APC) governors to work with the party’s leadership and lawmakers on the election of principal officers of the incoming 10th National Assembly.

According to a statement by media aide Tunde Rahman, he gave the charge on Thursday when the governors under the aegis of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) visited him.

“We thank God Almighty for our electoral victory. It was tough and turbulent. The challenge before us is working in unison with the party’s leadership and the National Assembly over the election of their principal officers,” Mr Tinubu stated.

The president-elect stated, “And I charge you to unite in spirit and faith and work in line with the party.”

The president-elect told the governors and former governorship candidates of the party that whether they were returned elected or not, the incoming regime belonged to all of them.

“Once we know what we are doing and communicating as elected leaders and loyal party men, we will conquer the challenge,” Mr Tinubu stated.

He reiterated that the governors were elected leaders to serve the people and humanity with fairness and justice.

Mr Tinubu expressed gratitude to God that he, as the first Muslim minority from the South-West, got Allah’s blessing to be elected as president.

He dismissed speculations about his health, saying all speculations had perished and their purveyors brought to shame.
