The Presidential candidate of Green Party of Nigeria, GPN who is also The National Chairman of the Party, Chief Sam Eke, has berated the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, led by its Chairman, Professor Yakubu Mahmood for the declaration of the Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, and the incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari, as the winner of the 2019 presidential election.
We had earlier reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Wednesday morning formally declared the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the February 23 presidential poll.
President Buhari polled a total of 15,191,847 votes, against the 11,262,978 votes recorded by Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
In a very swift reaction, Mr. Eke had rejected the outcome of the election as announced by INEC describing it as a monumental fraud, which does not reflect the wishes of Nigerian people.
Speaking to Newsmen in Umuahia, the Abia State Capital, The Presidential candidate said “it is unacceptable to us if this is the way election is being conducted. We are not yet in democracy, we are still in the military regime. And it is very unfortunate that the person of Professor Yakubu Mahmood will be the person to be used to do this kind of job”.
Going further, he expressed his total dissatisfaction saying ”I am not satisfied with the outcome of the presidential election. This is a monumental fraud. The election is a sham. And as far as I’m concerned, that is not election. It is unacceptable to the Green Party of Nigeria(GPN) speaking as their presidential candidate and National chairman.
” The irregularity is of the highest order, that it has now made everything worsen for this country. Because, the average citizens of Nigeria that suppose to take the presidency back cannot do that, because, there is no credibility in the process.
“And you can see it, it is even written in all over the places and on the face of the INEC chairman and even those that rigged themselves into power. This is the worst election ever conducted in the history of this country” he concluded.
