May29:We're Going To Have An INEC Declared Winner If INEC Fails To Show Us How Tinubu Won-K. Okonkwo

It is barely eight (8) days to the swearing in of the President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President of Nigeria, after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared him the winner of the 2023 Presidential Election. His victory is being challenged in court by Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Atiku Abubakar of PDP.

One of Peter Obi's lawyers, Kenneth Okonkwo recently shared a link to the column he wrote on The Sun Newspaper where he spoke extensively on the 2023 Presidential Election and the aftermath of the process.

Kenneth Okonkwo said that Tinubu did not meet the constitutional requirement in the FCT, as he did not pull a total of 25% of votes in Abuja. He stated that the deliberate circumventing of the constitution, Electoral Acts and the rules and regulations of INEC was done to subvert the will of the people. Kenneth Okonkwo said that history has shown that any government that did not derive its power from the will of the people will not get the support of the people in its administration.

He further stated that if on May 29 a new government is installed without INEC coming out with evidences to support the declaration of Tinubu as winner of the election, then it means whoever is sworn in is an INEC declared winner, not a Nigerian elected President.

Kenneth Okonkwo is trying to say that INEC should show Nigerians how Tinubu won the election and was declared winner by providing evidences to back his victory.
