The presidential poll produced former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu as the winner of the keenly contested election, as announced by Nigeria’s electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) polled 8,794,726 and was declared President-Elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The former Lagos State governor came out tops in 12 of Nigeria’s 36 states, and secured significant numbers in several other states to claim the highest number of votes — 8,794,726, almost two million votes more than his closest rival — former Vice President Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Atiku, 76, who has now run for president six times, got 6,984,520 votes, while Peter Obi, who in less than a year, galvanised young voters in a manner some have described as unprecedented finished the race with 6,101,533 in the third spot.

Atiku and Obi have since rejected the outcome of the election. Videos and pictures from all sorts of electoral malpractice supposedly from the poll flooded social media.

Both Atiku and Obi have also since commenced legal redress of the poll.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, Reno Omokri, who has been very critical of the former Anambra governor wondered what exactly Obi is going to court for.

According to Reno Omokri, it should have dawned on the LP presidential candidate that Tinubu “used him.”

He argued that Obi has no path to victory, either through the courts or election.

The ex-presidential aide, however, said Obi has the number but lacks the spread.

He wrote, “Peter Obi came third. Exactly what is he going to court for? To ask to be declared winner, or to cancel the election?
