the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dele Momodu is saying the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is turning Nigeria into a one-party state, adding that the just concluded presidential election was a waste of taxpayers’ resources.
Momodu, a campaigner for PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, says the APC administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari should have told Nigerians that the APC is not ready to go and not have bothered itself to conduct an election.
He says INEC failed to deliver on its promises, especially on the Bimodal Voter Registration System, BVAS and an on-time transmission of results through its Result Viewing Portal, IReV.
The PDP chieftain describes the February 25, 2023 presidential election as one of Nigeria’s worst elections since the First Republic.
Bringing you more post-election reactions, the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu is saying that he is not losing hope despite his defeat in the just concluded senatorial election held last Saturday.
Ikpeazu, a two-time governor, lost to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
The governor is also faulting the Independent National Electoral Commission for declaring Abaribe winner.
The governor, rather than giving up hope, appreciates God for the opportunity to govern Abia State for eight years.
After so much hue and cry about its conduct of the elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission has so far uploaded 147,578 results from 176, 846 polling units, five days after the presidential election.
The figure represents 83 per cent of results from all the polling units.
The electronic transmission of results is reportedly still ongoing.
Nigerians expected that the election results would be uploaded on election day as promised by the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu.
However, INEC came under fire for its failure to upload results to its viewing portal which led to the walkout of some parties’ agents on Monday, at the National Collation Centre.
