BREAKING: PDP, Labour Party, others ask INEC Chairman to resign, demand fresh Elections

The Labour Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and African Democratic Congress (ADC) and six other political parties on Tuesday demanded a fresh election, saying the February 25 presidential poll in Nigeria has been “unrecoverably compromised”.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Labour Party National Chairman, Julius Abure; the PDP chairman, Iyorchia Ayu; as well as their ADC counterpart, Ralph Nwosu, disclosed their stance during a joint press conference at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja.

Part of the grouse is that Saturday’s presidential election was manipulated by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at polling units, especially by their failure to upload results electronically on the commission’s Results Viewing Portal (IReV).

“This election is not free and far from being fair”, adding that there are “ongoing cancellation of results from areas of strength of the opposition parties,” Abure, who spoke on behalf of the LP, PDP and the ADC, said.

The aggrieved parties declared a vote of no confidence on INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu and asked him to immediately step aside ‘for an unbiased person to take over and conduct a fresh election’.
