Ohaneze Ndigbo Rejects Result Of Presidential Election, Says It Will Be Challenged In Court

On Wednesday, March 1, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the presidential election.

Reacting to the development in a statement on Wednesday, Ohanaeze Ndigbo said the results declared so far were not the true reflection of the people’s will.

The body said Ohanaeze was shocked that despite the outcry by Nigerians across the country that results being declared were doctored, the electoral body still went on to declare them as being authentic.

The National Vice President of the organisation, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene stated these in Awka, on Wednesday.

Ohanaeze said the results released were marred with “monumental irregularities” and failure of the commission to follow its guidelines in conducting the election.

The body urged Nigerians to remain calm, adding that the last may not have been heard of the 2023 presidential election.

Okeke-Ogene said, “With voting and declaration of results over, other processes will follow. I am sure that many Nigerians will, on their own, go to court to challenge the outcome of the exercise.

“Many people have not accepted the declaration and many do not believe that they have a President-elect yet.

“This is the worst election conducted by INEC. Imagine our President, Muhammadu Buhari, saying during one of the campaigns that Bola Tinubu is the next president at a time the election had not been conducted, which was an indication that the election was even rigged before it was conducted.

“The INEC chairman, Prof. Yakubu Mahmood was busy promising Nigerians that their votes would count and that the votes would be transmitted from the polling units to the INEC server, only for the commission to do everything manually with the attendant corrupt practices.

“As it turned out, many Nigerians voted, but their votes did not count, which was frustrating.

“If the LP goes to court, all the ugly things done during the February 2023 presidential election will be exposed for the world to see.”

Okeke-Ogene said further that the Labour Party changed the political configuration of the country, adding that things will never be the same again.

Nigerians are now more determined to take back their country and Ohanaeze believes that they will succeed.

“With what happened in states like Lagos, Plateau, Nasarawa, Kaduna and other places, it is obvious that Nigerians are no longer talking along tribal inclinations,” he added.

He told the international community that in addition to sending observers to Nigeria during elections, they should also sanction those who undermine democracy in the country.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Labour Party (LP) had also rejected the results of the presidential elections, vowing to challenge the outcome in court.
