Speaking during the public presentation of the book written in honour of Gov. Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, Tinubu said the party was able to win the election because the party was able to connect with the populace, who were yearning for a change that is non-violent.

He said the results of the just concluded general elections have demonstrated clearly the desire by Nigerians for change.
