The candidate of the APC in the just-concluded elections, General Muhammadu Buhari has issued an interim message of thanks and gratitude to Nigerians for choosing him and his party over and above the PDP and their candidate, the incumbent President, Dr Jonathan Goodluck.

The party declared victory after Dr Jonathan called General Buhari at5:15pm to make a concession and congratulate the winner.

A statement issued on his behalf this evening by the Director Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council Garba Shehu said the mood of the country as well as its current state did not warrant the type of wild celebrations reportedly going on in some cities across the country.

Buhari said anybody happy with the victory of the APC in the presidential election will not be involved in the molestation of opponents or the destruction of their property.

“He or she is not with me, whoever does that,” Buhari curtly said.

He is due to make a major acceptance speech in the coming hours .
