The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed to all its members and supporters across Nigeria to remain calm and peaceful, and to resist all acts of provocation as they await the results of the presidential elections.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the post-election moment, when all Nigerians are eagerly awaiting the results of the elections, is a tense moment for the country, hence nothing must be done to disturb the peace or cause disunity.
"We must begin the very critical process of healing all the wounds inflicted by the rancorous and divisive electioneering campaign, and rebuilding trust among our unprecedentedly-divided people," it said.
APC reminded all its members and supporters that the agents of disunity are on the prowl, ready to trigger trouble and destabilize the country, hence they must not play into the hands of such people.
"To all our members, supporters and indeed all Nigerians, we urge you to please remain calm and show equanimity if you must celebrate," the party said.
