PDP rejects Tinubu’s victory, insists Atiku won

The People's Democratic Party on Thursday criticized the declaration of All Progressive Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinub as the winner of Saturday's presidential election, arguing that its standard-bearer Atiku Abubakar won a hard-fought election.

The largest opposition party made the announcement in a statement issued by his head of state communications, Debo Ologunagbo. Punch reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission has declared Tinub elected president.

Former Lagos State Governor Tinubu has been declared the 70-year-old president in the 2023 presidential election as he received 8,794,726 votes. INEC President Professor Mahmood Yakubu announced Tinubu as the winner early Wednesday morning at the International Collation Center in Abuja.

However, the main opposition on Thursday called on the Electoral Commission to immediately withdraw the return certificate issued to Tinubu and cancel the presidential election. This motion—the PDP's claim—complied with INEC's mandate under Section 65 of the 2022 Electoral Act. By declaring victory for Tinubu, the INEC has signed the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (Amendment), the 2022 Elections Act, and his INEC to conduct his 2023 presidential election campaign, according to the main opposition parties. Violated the provisions of the guidelines and regulations.
