Attesting to the growing intimacy between him and the Rivers outgoing governor, Tinubu said: “My visit to Rivers is a promise kept, promise fulfilled. If you talk of character, Governor Wike, you are very dependable.

“In Wike, I see a man of principle. He took a stand that the presidency must return to the South. And he had the courage to stand by his conviction, not minding whose ox is gored. He is indeed a man of great integrity. You promoted unity, fairness and championed justice.

Mr Tunji Akinosi, a House of Representatives member-elect, claims his car was never involved in an accident that allegedly killed a hawker in Lagos on May Day.

Akinosi, who was elected to represent Ado-Odo/Ota Federal Constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was also a Commissioner for Forestry in Ogun.

He issued the clarifications in response to a viral video accusing him of knocking down a hawker and breaking his leg in a May Day accident in Lagos.

According to him, the viral video was done in “bad taste and an attempt to smear my personality”.

The 2023 presidential election witnessed so many narratives described as unprecedented in the history of Nigeria elections. According to political analysts, it was brazen, it was desperate, it was hard to believe that the nation, instead of improving to catch up with other advanced countries, is retrogressing to say the least.

The election witnessed so much destruction including bloodbaths. Instead of jubilation when a winner was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the wee hour of March 1, 2023, there was silence everywhere

Shakespeare captured the graveyard silence that greeted the announcement when he said, “When beggars die, there are no comets seen.” This quotation aptly captured the announcement by the INEC, there were dearth of jubilation.

Aside the graveyard silence that greeted the announcement, the election was widely condemned and discredited both at home and abroad.
