clock menu more-arrow no yes

The leader of Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, asserts that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is not the president-elect of Nigeria and that the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) decision to declare Tinubu the winner of the 2023 presidential election will be overturned.

Pa Adebanjo is one of the elder statesmen who officially endorsed Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, on the grounds that the South East should be given a chance to run for president in order for equality and justice to rule supreme.

In spite of allegations of several alleged irregularities nationwide, including the electoral umpire’s failure to fulfill its promise to use technology in the poll, the INEC pronounced Bola Tinubu the winner of the February 25th, 2023 presidential election.

While the BVAS was unsuccessful in many states, several Governors, particularly in Rivers State and Lagos State, were accused of rigging the election and suppressing popular will.

In an appearance on Arise Television on Friday, Adebanjo declared that INEC’s judgment about the outcome of the presidential election on Saturday would not stand.

“I paid attention to the INEC Chairman when Dino Melaye urged him to suspend rather than cancel the collation, citing numerous errors that needed to be fixed. No, I’ll study it once I finish this exercise, he assured them.

“As for the Chairman, those of us who are familiar with him are aware that he hasn’t always been the man he ought to be. He is a colossal letdown. It’s not the first time he’s let the people of Lagos down. He tricked us in 2019 and has now done it once more, believing that Nigerians are dummies.

“And I’ve told it before: Babangida cannot win this election. That was an open-air theft. The entire nation backed you in your effort to change the electoral legislation so that it is carried out by electoral law, but you returned to fight against us during the election. What a loss. I only feel bad for the nation.

“I simply feel bad for the kids. But I already told you that this government is a complete failure. It’s a catastrophe that God will aid us in overcoming. There is absolutely no President-Elect. It’s only a facade that will eventually be taken down. We are all still here to see it. Why won’t we adhere to the rules established by the election law?
