The Independent National Electoral Commission has removed the name of the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ado Doguwa, from the list of elected House of Representatives members.
Doguwa was arrested for his alleged involvement in the killing of several persons and burning of the Secretariat of New Nigeria People’s Party in the just concluded general election.
Recall that, Yakubu declared Tinubu as the president-elect in the early hours of Wednesday after he polled 8,794,726 votes from the 24,025, 940 total valid votes cast.
Though, PDP and LP have rejected the declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission that Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the APC won the 2023 presidential election.
It will be recalled that INEC had earlier announced Doguwa, a member of the All Progressives Congress, as the winner of the February 25 election in the Doguwa/Tudunwada constituency.
Doguwa was on Wednesday remanded in prison custody by a chief magistrates’ court in Kano.
Besides, the list of elected members released by INEC shows Doguwa’s name was removed.
Doguwa was arrested for his alleged involvement in the killing of several persons and burning of the Secretariat of New Nigeria People’s Party recently.
