Former Anambra State Governor Chukwuemeka Ezeife has stated that President-elect Bola Tinubu will not be sworn in as President of Nigeria.
Ezeife said this while accusing the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of rigging the Presidential and National Assembly elections in favor of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The former Anambra governor stated that Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, has clearly won the presidential election across the country.
In the early hours of Wednesday, INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu announced Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, as the victor of the polls.
But, Ezeife told the Arise TV Morning Program that the presidential election showed a lot to Nigerians.
“I applaud all foreign organisations that reacted and criticised the integrity of the election, and I thank all Nigerians for how they punished the Labour Party,” he stated.
“In fact I’m satisfied with the outcome the Labour Party received from the election not the ones announced by the INEC. Of course, we know which one is a forgery. Nonetheless, we saw the Labour Party triumph in Lagos and across the country.
Those people who do not believe in the oneness of the country are now thinking otherwise. And Nigeria’s future is now brighter. Tinubu, my buddy, will not be sworn in as President, in my opinion.
“If it is done it’d be a tragedy but I think this issue has opened the eyes of Nigerians. We applaud the Yorubas, the Hausas, and every other group in Nigeria for their openness. Don’t mind the ruse that put Peter Obi third.
“Everyone knows it’s impossible, especially given the controversy surrounding the Muslim-Muslim ticket. It is necessary to distinguish between the election as it was conducted and the election as it was reported. Tinubu will not be Nigeria’s President. I don’t think he’ll be sworn in.”
