Atiku Asks INEC Chairman To Upload Results From Polling Units To Stop Governors undermining outcomes

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party's nominee for president, has asked Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to give instructions to the collation officers for the election scheduled for Saturday to quickly transfer the results from the polling places to the INEC website. This information was provided by Atiku in a statement by Phrank Shaibu, his Special Assistant for Public Media.

According to Sahara Reporters, He claimed that this was now required to stop some governors from undermining the outcomes of the local government collation. Any attempt to undermine the will of the people as freely expressed in their votes from yesterday would be a disservice to Nigerians and a violation of democracy, Atiku stated.

He urged Nigerians to maintain their composure while remaining attentive to prevent anti-democratic extremists who are disguising themselves as progressives from seizing power. Early data from polling places and exit polls also suggest that Atiku Abubakar is expected to become the first candidate to meet the necessary 25% of votes cast in at least 24 states in the tense contest for the 2023 Nigerian presidential elections.
