Six States of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) including the Attorney General of Adamawa State, the Attorney General of Akwa Ibom State, the Attorney General of Bayelsa State, the Attorney General of Delta State, the Attorney General of Edo State and Attorney General of Sokoto State, have taken legal action by filing a court writ with the Supreme Court of Nigeria. The writ calls for the nullification of the results from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that declared Bola Tinubu as the President-elect of Nigeria. The writ was shared online, and it has sparked controversy and debate among Nigerians. The writ alleges that the pronouncement of Tinubu as President-elect by INEC is null and void and calls for the annulment of the results.
Despite the legal action taken by the PDP States, Tinubu has already been presented with a certificate of return, which was handed over to the incumbent President, Buhari. Many Nigerians have rejected the results from INEC, and there have been protests in several states calling for the nullification of the results.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has come under heavy criticism from many Nigerians after the commissioner declared the elections in favor of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and announced Tinubu as the President-elect of Nigeria. The controversy surrounding the announcement has fueled speculations of electoral fraud and manipulation.
The court writ filed by the PDP States with the Supreme Court of Nigeria seeks to resolve the dispute and restore confidence in the electoral process. The writ also calls for an investigation into the conduct of the elections and the activities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The writ shared on Twitter by Oseni Rufai, a Nigerian citizen, has garnered attention and reactions from many Nigerians online. The case is expected to generate significant interest and debate in the coming days and weeks as Nigerians await the decision of the Supreme Court.
