Benin - John Oyegun, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the party conceded victory to the PDP in the Ekiti governorship election to prevent the outbreak of violence.
Oyegun, who said this in Benin on Sunday while fielding questions from newsmen, also said that contrary to insinuations the Ekiti governorship poll was characterised with lots of irregularities.
He said that it was in view of these irregularities that the party took the decision to challenge the election result in the court.
"It should be noted that we didn't just concede victory because the election was flawless but we took the decision to avoid violence.
"We did not want anything that will make the people react negatively and violently.
He said that Nigerians should embrace the APC as the new party with a different agenda to fix Nigeria.
