The Federal Government has rejected the European Union’s report on the 2023 general elections, describing the conclusions of the EU Electoral Observer Mission as jaundiced, that is skewed and biased.
This was disclosed in a statement released by the Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, Dele Alake.
The Federal Government urges the European Union and other foreign interests to be objective in all their assessments of the internal affairs of the country and allow Nigeria to breathe.
Alake is insisting that the February 25, 2023 presidential election was clearly and fairly won by Tinubu, the then candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC.
The Chief Observer, Barry Andrews, Member of the European Parliament says in the lead up to the 2023 general elections, Nigerian citizens demonstrated a clear commitment to the democratic process but says their expectations were dashed.
However, Festus Okoye, INEC’s head of voter education and sensitization disagreed with that assessment saying, there were many positives to take.
