The standard bearer of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has again described the February 25 presidential election as the worst election in the history of the nation.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), according to Obi, flagrantly violated the 2022 electoral legislation during the election's administration, likely making it the worst vote in the nation's history.
The former governor of Anambra State reportedly disclosed these during a Monday visit on the morning show of Arise Television, according to Nigerianewsagency.
Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC chairman, failed to deliver on his repeated assurances that the election would be the best thing to happen to Nigeria, according to Obi.
"If you look at the last election, it is probably the worst election," he said. "The 2022 electoral law, which was intended to improve our overall election process, was abused, and the chairman of INEC continued and consistently promised that this is going to be the best thing that will happen to Nigeria.
The former governor of Anambra State has already sued the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to challenge the election's results.
