Why INEC shouldn’t have declared Tinubu winner – Atiku campaign

Daniel Bwala, a spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign, on Wednesday said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should not have declared Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) the winner of the February 25 election “because he did not secure 25 percent of the votes in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Bwala, in a post on his verified Twitter handle, vowed that Tinubu “would be the third African president whose victory would be upturned, and a fresh election ordered”.

“Even when @inecnigeria decided to rely on the widely contested and flawed results (which have now been proved by results on INEC IREV), the Chairman of INEC (Prof. Mahmood Yakubu) ought not to have declared Tinubu as winner because he did not secure 25 percent of the votes in the FCT.

“See Buhari v Yar Adua 2008 Supreme Court case where the Supreme Court interpreted the word ‘AND” as conjunctive to the context of the case.

“Tinubu would be the third African president whose victory would be upturned and a fresh election ordered,” he wrote.

    WHOEVER CONSULTS THIS BUNKUM EMPTY SCULL MUST BE THROWING MONEY TO THE WINDS.

    We question we need to ask the baby kindergarten baby lawyer is who then was made the president as the outcome of the suit. Why did Yar’adua become president from the pronouncement of the court based on the reference by the senseless unqualified lawyer?

    We need again to ask Bawala to explain the import of the word “conjunctive”.
