It is no longer news that the just concluded Presidential election has been generating different kinds of controversies both online and offline. This is mostly a result of some reports of electoral malpractice during the election.
Mr. Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate under the platform of the Labour Party has alleged INEC chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu of election rigging. In this statement, he said, "It’s not God’s will for Nigerians to accept a rigged election".
The Presidential candidate has asked Nigerians not to accept the outcome of a rigged election as the will of God.
He said the problem of Nigerians over the years was accepting what was wrong and unacceptable as God’s wish for the country.
Obi spoke on a day the legal team of the Labour Party, LP, met with officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to inspect materials used for the February 25 presidential poll.
During his speech, Mr. Obi disclosed his disappointment towards Nigeria as a nation. He said it was disheartening that after 63 years as a nation, Nigeria remained unable to conduct an election that met the minimum acceptable standard.
The former Anambra State Governor described the 2023 presidential election as the worst in Nigeria’s history, considering that the Electoral Law of 2022 was authorized to ensure free, fair, and credible elections but the reverse was the case.
The problem of Nigerians is accepting what is wrong and dragging God into it. The will of God is doing the right thing at the right time. Lately, Mr. Peter Obi said is it God’s wish that we remain poor as a country, despite its abundant blessings on us.
