Nigerian elections must be free, fair, and credible, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). However, some party agents at the collation centre reportedly claimed that the official results issued are different from what was announced in their various polling units after some presidential results were announced by the Commission.
In light of this, Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has been urged by Primate Elijah Ayodele, the Spiritual Director of the IRNI Evangelical Spiritual Church, to resist efforts to rig the election. This serves as a reminder, in his view, that even God is opposed to rigging. This was stated by the man of God in a video posted on his official social media account.
As stated by Primate Ayodele: "The BVAS is the remedy for rigging prevention. The election will be rigged if you give in to pressure, Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of INEC. If it does, even Heaven will not be joyful for God abhors such. Keep your ground to fend off the enemy. Be strict with yourself."
