The All Progressive Congress has described events that followed the United States of America’s November 2020 presidential election and President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede defeat as condemnable.
The APC said this in a statement signed by Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, Secretary of its Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee on Saturday in Abuja.
Akpanudoedehe recalled that the All Progress Congress contested elections won some, lost some without splitting hairs, adding that at some point, Apc lost more than five states to the People Democracy People, yet allowed democracy to prevail.
Adding that the APC had remained resolute in its belief that in every electoral contest, popular will must prevail.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Twitter suspended President Donald Trump’s account on Friday citing risk of further incitement of violence in the United States.
This was after Trump used the platform to condemn Vice-President Mike Pence as his supporters stormed the Capitol.
Trump’s attempts to tweet from other social media accounts were also blocked.
At one point, he was tweeting from his campaign account, but that was promptly suspended.
