The leader of the apex Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, has said Nigeria currently has no president-elect despite the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declaring Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress winner of the February 25 presidential election.
In a recent interview with Arise TV, Pa Adebanjo insisted that what the country currently have is “a sham that will be pulled in due course”.
He said INEC jettisoned constitutional methodology and must explain to Nigerians why.
He said: “It is just the result of a bad government. A disaster that God will help us to get rid of. I can assure you there is no president-elect at all; it is just a sham that should be pulled in due course.
“This is a game we all see. We are all living witnesses to it. Why don’t you [INEC] follow the laws that will guide the elections?”
The 95-year-old said Tinubu’s camp, in their attempt to reply to the groundswell of criticisms that trailed his controversial announcement as the winner of the presidential election, picked up the messengers and left the messages, which is the main issue.
