PDP Governors, Ayu, Okowa, Other Stakeholders Set To Protest At INEC Headquarters, Over February 25, Presidential Elections Results

Due to controversies bedeviling the outcome of the February 25, 2023 presidential elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has planned to hold a protest at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters in Abuja today, March 6.

INEC had on Wednesday, March 1, declared Bola Ahmed Tinubu, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the elections. Owing to this unexpected outcome, PDP and some other parties have since then kicked against the results, accusing INEC being intransparent and engaging in elections malpractice. This is because Bimordal  Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) wasn’t used in many polling units.

To further show their grievances concerning the elections, they have called on some PDP governors and stakeholders to show up en masse for the protest.

In a notice by Ibrahim Bashir, director of admin, Atiku campaign council, the party informed its members that the protest would take off from the Legacy House in the Maitama area at 10 am today. 

“I am directed to respectfully invite Your Excellencies: The National Chairman, Dr Iyrochia Ayu, The Vice Presidential Candidate and Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyichukwu Okowa, Governors of; Akwa Ibom and Chairman of PCC, Mr Udom Emmanuel, Sokoto state and DG of PCC, Rt Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, and Governors of Bayelsa, Edo, Adamawa, Bauchi, Taraba and Osun States; Former Senate Presidents, Senator David Mark and Senator Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, BOT members, NEC members, PDP Senators and House of Representatives Members, NWC members of the party, DDGs, Directors, Deputies and Assistant Directors of NCMC; Members of the PCC; Leadership of People Living With Disabilities and all other Stakeholders to a protest match to INEC Office.
