In a statement obviously intended to calm nerves and move ahead since the embarrassing loss of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last Saturday Edo State governorship election, the national leader of the party and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has spoken, describing the party’s loss as “a lesson that we are not gods”.
His statement released Monday afternoon is presented below;
“We should enjoy and take pleasure from our defeats as much as we take from our victories.
The extent and length they go to see us down shows how great we are.
Our defeats should be a lesson that we are not gods, that we are but men.
That we are mortals who suffer from set backs, betrayals… But if our fellow men see us as gods and celebrate our defeats like they’ve defeated gods, then surely we must be close to being gods.
They seek schadenfreude at our shrine but we only have to give, exactly what they hate us for.
Akanbi is a movement.
You either believe or hate, there’s no middle ground. Progress”.
