Politicians Who Cannot Accept The Pain Of Defeat In Elections Do Not Deserve The Joy Of Victory — President Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu says that politicians who cannot accept the pain of defeat in elections do not deserve the joy of victory when it is their turn to triumph.

Tinubu made this assertion in his first Democracy Day speech as president.

In reference to the 2023 general elections, the president asserted that those who disagree with the outcome of the polls are taking full advantage of the constitutional provisions to seek redress in court and according to him, this remains one of the reasons why democracy is still the best form of government invented by man.

However, the president adds that the beauty of democracy is that those who win today can lose tomorrow and those who lose today will have an opportunity to compete and win in the next round of elections.
