*An Independent Review of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) iREV’s portal commissioned by Reportera News has exposed the extensive electoral fraud that occured in the last presidential election.
*The February 25th 2023 presidential election has been described by Nigerian citizens, political commentators, & International Observers as the worst election in the nation’s history.
* It’s 2 months after the flawed polls, more evidence have been outpouring to further expose the travesty that was administered to Nigerians by INEC’s Huncho, Professor Mahmood Yakubu in the guise of an election.
*The European Union (EU) and other foreign observers scored the election below par.
Nigerians woke up to the News of the declaration of APC’s Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the winner of the flawed polls, thus returned ‘president-elect’, a decision largely seen as controversial, with many calling for the annulment of the decision because of the irregularities and inconsistencies of the election results uploaded on their results portal, iREV. The former Lagos governor was clandestinely declared winner by 4:03am when most Nigerians would have been asleep, an action that has called for the arrest and prosecution of the INEC boss who failed to follow the guidelines established by the newly reformed Electoral Act of 2022.
Reportera News commissioned an Independent Review of the iREV portal immediately after the polls amidst heavy criticisms from voters across the country over the inconsistencies in the results as a significant sum of the results varied greatly from what was announced at the various Polling Units, this is apart from the many recorded incidents of violence and voter suppression against a particular political party. We reviewed the results of the 36 states & the FCT for the presidential election and found out that the outcome of this election would have been totally different had INEC followed due process.
Prof Mahmood Yakubu, INEC Chairman.
Something interesting was discovered by our researchers within minutes of analysing the data on the portal; massive incidents of mutilated results, alteration of figures, and reallocation of votes from Labour Party (LP) to All Progressives Congress (APC) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP), this was indeed a ‘sight not to behold’. Our analysts swung into action using every available means to decrypt and obtain the correct & original figures on the sheets before they were mutilated, after which they were collated. The major beneficiary of this scheme is the ruling party, APC which in one particular incident allocated as much as over 60% of LP’s votes to themselves. The victims; Peter Obi and LP were stripped of victory in 4 states which would have brought the total number of states they won to 16, not 12 initially announced by INEC.
In addition to these 12 states; Abia, Enugu, Anambra, Ebonyi, Imo, Edo, Plateau, FCT, Delta, Crossriver, Lagos, Nasarawa, LP scored majority of the votes in Taraba, Rivers, Bayelsa, and Benue states.
Peter Obi Scored The Highest Number Of Valid Votes In 16 States.
Majority of Nigerians feel that Peter Obi won the elections, the atmosphere in the country following Tinubu’s emergence as ‘president-elect’ was that of sadness and mourning, it was enough to conclude that this wasn’t the man that the people voted for.
