TInubu’s victory: Six States drag FG to Supreme Court

Six states—Adamawa, Akwa-Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo, and Sokoto—have sued the federal government in the Supreme Court over how the presidential and National Assembly polls were conducted, tallied, and announced on February 25, 2023.

The All Progressives Congress candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu was declared the winner of the presidential election on February 25. The States want the Supreme Court to rule that this decision is invalid.

They claimed that the Chairman of INEC's announcement of the complete results of the presidential election at the National Collation Centre in Abuja was a flagrant breach of the Electoral Act.

They claim they are seeking a declaration that the presidential election and the National Assembly elections were not conducted in accordance with the electoral act due to the non-uploading of the results from each of the 176,974 polling places countrywide.

Recall that on Wednesday, the INEC announced that Tinubu had won the presidential poll.

The certificate of return was also given to Tinubu by the electoral authority.

The six states are demanding that the election outcomes from February 25, 2022 be made accountable.
