Afenifere, a pan-Yoruba sociopolitical organisation, announced on Wednesday that Peter Gregory Obi, a former governor of Anambra State and a presidential candidate for the Labour Party, LP, had won the election. This announcement came amid ongoing public outrage over the results of the recently concluded presidential election conducted by INEC across the nation.
You might find it interesting to know that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, and a presidential candidate for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), as the winner of the election, after garnering the most votes to defeat Peter Obi of the Labor Party (LP), Atiku Abubakar of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), and Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples (NNPP).
Based on these notes, the group asserts that Professor Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of INEC, declared Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, a former senator who served the good people of Lagos West during the Third Republic, and a presidential candidate for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), to be the President-elect, in violation of the Election Act 2022, and that the Presidential and National Assembly elections did not meet those requirements.
This information was made public in a statement issued by the organisation during a special general meeting that was conducted at the Isanya-Ogbo home of the party's leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo.
