No court’ll affirm Tinubu’s declaration as president-elect, says group
A diaspora group, Professionals for Good Governance and Social Justice, PGGSJ, has said that no court would affirm the declaration of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC as president-elect “considering the amount of irregularities at the just concluded February 25 presidential election.”
Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had on March 1 declared Tinubu as winner of the election having polled 8,794,726 votes, which represents over 25 per cent of the votes cast in 30 states, more than the 25 states constitutionally required.
INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, also announced that Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP came second in the election with a total of 6,984,520 votes and follows by Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP with a total of 6,101,533 votes while Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP came fourth with 1,496,687 votes.
But PGGSJ maintained that the declaration of the former Lagos State governor “cannot stand in court” based on the independent investigation carried out by it on the outcome of the presidential election.
According to a statement signed by the group’s Convener, Dr. Ben Chukwu, “it was observed that there were irregularities in the results released by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC in Lagos, Rivers, Edo, Plateau, Borno, Kaduna, Ekiti and several other places in the country.”
The group claimed that from the investigation and analysis of presidential election results of Lagos State from IREV portal LP won APC with a total of 178,411 votes as against the figure declared by INEC where LP won with 10,000 votes and it is important to note that this margin was after returning those obvious switched/altered votes to their rightful places, although most were not legible.
It added that the results equally showed that about 23% of them are: blurred, mutilated, over-voted, absent and unaccounted for.
“It is evident that APC being in control of Lagos cannot allow results they won to fall into the aforesaid categories. Hence, these are Labour Party results that have been doctored and bastardised by the APC and INEC under the supervision of security agents,” PGGSJ explained.
The group, therefore, called on all well meaning Nigerians, the security agencies and especially the judiciary/judges to save Nigeria from inevitable disintegration and unimaginable crisis by jettisoning the corruptly announced result, upholding rule of law and restoring justice to the pained Nigerian masses.
“The wave of the February 25th presidential election is still hovering around every Nigerian both at home and in Diaspora.
“Until now, many Nigerians cannot comprehend why the INEC chairman ignored every call to follow the 2022 Electoral Act as well as the INEC guidelines in announcing winners of elections. He rather enjoined all aggrieved parties to go to Court, when he could have withheld declaration and confirmed what has been uploaded to the IREV.
“INEC has displayed who they are again by conducting the worst election in the history of Nigeria. After wasting over N300 billion tax payers money, the IREV server was switched off to make it impossible for presiding officers to upload results in real time.
“After the election and all that happened, Professionals for Good Governance and Social Justice, PGGSJ began investigation into what happened during the election and who actually won the February 25th presidential election.
“While other groups have been investigating results from other states, PGGSJ chose Lagos State with the highest polling units of 13,325. What the group discovered is a bombshell as we decided to share the information in this medium.” the group further stressed.
